Adventure, Who Me?
I am not a person who enjoys change. Often times it involves a lot of work, anxiety, and annoyance. In fact, at one of my jobs, when IT came around to update my computer, I considered standing in front of it with a baseball bat to stop them because it never failed when they updated my computer, everything fell apart and was lost forever. It was always a change-fail.
I will drive a car until the wheels fall off and then put the wheels back on because I am used to that car and I don’t want to have to deal with car salesmen and that sixth level of hell.
I don’t like change.
All this being said, I recently moved to Austin from my tiny, rural hometown. It’s been a big change. A very big change but it’s been a good one. Because I’m in completely new surroundings and situations, I find myself being challenged to be adventurous, to talk to new people and go places I haven’t been before.
And you know what? The computer hasn’t crashed. The wheels haven’t fallen off.
I have learned that adventure and change can be, not only survived, but enjoyed. Who knew?
Barazers, what adventures and changes have you made lately?
