If you are anything like me, you get a twisting feeling in the pit of your stomach at the thought of change. Change is without a doubt an uncomfortable phase in anyone’s life. And no one can blame you if you prefer to stay in your comfortable little bubble without moving a muscle.

But the thing everyone will tell you about change is — yes, it is uncomfortable and scary, but it also moves you forward.

If you never said yes to that manager position, you would have NEVER gotten to where you are today. Sure, your whole body may have been trembling at the thought of new responsibilities a year ago. But look at you now! And, wow, is that a city view from your new corner office? Oh girl, you GO!

And it’s definitely OK to be scared. Whether you become nauseous at the thought of new city or jump at the opportunity to explore a new place, everyone gets nervous. One person might feel the nerves before the change happens and another might feel it as she settles in.

No matter how you deal with a big or small change, the change will be worth it. Because change means BETTER. It means NEW and a chance at a new beginning. It means walking away from something that hurt you or kept you from progressing as a person.

But we all know change can be a lonely place. Whether it's a new job, city, or you now lead a single life, it’s nice to have some encouragement to deal with the change.

And at this point, your mom calls you every day and asks in the most “mom” voice ever “SO, how are you doing?” And her coddling just isn’t helping anymore. It did in the crying phase, but now you need some inspo to embrace the change.
