Why Change is a Great Thing

You always hear people saying, “Change is good.” But, if we’re being honest change is really scary. Change is inevitable and no matter how long you put it off change is always going to come. Instead of fearing change, I think we should embrace it. Without change and taking risks life would be boring.

I spent the summer living with my sister across the country in San Francisco. One of the scariest changes I’ve ever made. Now that my time in San Fran is (unfortunately) coming to a close, I couldn’t be happier to have had this experience. I’ve gotten to be even closer to my sister, I’ve been immersed in a new city, and I’ve learned a lot about myself.

Why Change is a Great Thing

Take the scary parts of change and spin it into something positive. For example:

  1. Your Big is graduating: Now it’s your turn to be the head of the family and be the best Big and GBig and GGBig anyone could ask for.
  2. New roommates: More friends! Whether you knew them beforehand or not you get to know new people better than before.
  3. Studying abroad or spending a lot of time in a new place: You’re seeing parts of the world that you’ve never seen before. Not a lot of people have that opportunity and you should cherish it.

Why Change is a Great Thing

Sure, change is super scary. But, change is the best thing that will ever happen to you. You’re young! And life is short! Make changes now and take risks because it’s now or never. Embrace the change and be happy!
