Hello to my loyal readers and anyone out there that may see this. I know that it has been quite some time since I last wrote to you. In that time there has been some major change in my life. I finished my education, started a new job, left that job, started a different job, began a new relationship, and moved my residence.

I was writing on this blog consistently for months, posting like clockwork every week. I apologize for my absence, but during my sabbatical from blogging I came to learn one very important thing about life: change is inevitable.

Change is inevitable. As a matter of fact, it’s a good thing. If you do not experience regular change in your life, both positive and sometimes negative, you will only be able to look back on a life of stagnation and waste. Sometimes change can be very confusing, uncomfortable, and unpleasant, but this may also be a sign of growth.

I am in a very different place than I was last year. Some things about this new place are much better, while some other things about it are worse. It may not always be the case, but I suppose that it is most desirable that the net difference is a positive one. I assure you that fortunately for me, it is. The most important thing is that I have grown.

Of course, there must be some order to life. One cannot simply wake up every day with an entirely new worldview, entirely new lifestyle, and entirely new purpose. However, through change we learn to adapt. We learn new skills. We explore new places. Some of these places are bright and sunny, while some of these places are very dark and disturbing. All in all, the changes we experience in life and the places that we go are all part of what could be called the hero’s journey. More on that in the future.

Recall some of the changes that have occurred in your life over the last 12 months. How many of them made your life more enjoyable? How many of them made your life more difficult? Most importantly, how much stronger have you become because of them? I invite you to meditate on that for a while.

Change can be hard, but what change can bring is growth. When growing pains set in, try to remember this to help you get through it.

I hope that nobody missed me too much. I’m back, a changed man, ready to start posting again every Friday.
