Letting go is hard. There is comfort in the known. There is a sense of safety. But the truth is, it isn’t real, life is nothing but unpredictable. I’d go as far as to say getting too comfortable is risky. Two reasons come to mind. Firstly, something major is going to come your way and you wont be ready for it without some practice. Secondly you just have to color outside the lines sometimes to get the most out of your one precious life!
One of the most important keys to happiness is learning not just to accept change, but to welcome it. I first read the book ‘Who Moved my Cheese’ about 10 years ago. I was going through some shifts on the work front at the time. I didn’t realize I had far bigger changes (and challenges) coming my way. I’ve learned its message is just as valuable when facing major life upheaval.
