Snippet Sunday # 4

Your new life is going to cost you your old one. It’s going to cost you your comfort zone and your sense of direction. It’s going to cost you relationships and friends. It’s going to cost you
being liked, and understood.
But it doesn’t matter. Because the people who are
meant for you are going to meet you on the other side.
and you’re going to build a new comfort zone around
the things that actually move you forward. And instead of being liked, you’re going to be loved. Instead of understood, you’re going to be seen. All you’re going to lose is what was built for a person you no longer are.
Let it go…

This weeks quote wound up being a tad bit longer than the usual ones. It’s a quote that was sent to me by a friend earlier this week. One that she says has played an influential part of her life recently, and I can understand why. It coupled with a certain Doctor Who regeneration that someone else sent me on the same day helped me deal with some feelings of loss and regret I had earlier this week. Both helped me realize that I haven’t been true to the journey I’ve undertaken so far by accepting this new job. The journey was supposed to be about me making a change in my life, one that would lead me to a better state of being. In reality however, I’ve fought that change tooth and nail since I’ve begun this journey. I’ve fought to hold on to the old ways, the things I believed defined me, the people that I believed needed to be a part of my life. So, on that Monday I decided it was time to make a change, I let you go. I let the old me fade, I let bygons be bygons. I say goodbye one last time. It’s time to create a new me, one that is not dependent upon the friends that he used to have, but one that is dependent only on himself, and one that can enjoy the new friendships and opportunities that life has presented him with.

That’s it for today, until tuesday…
