Throughout my lifetime, I’ve had a multitude of very well-meaning but annoying people tell me that “the only constant is change.” But today was the first time I realized that these same annoying people were actually 100% correct. As I grow up — yes, I know I’m 33 and that is adult age, but I don’t really consider myself a grown up yet — I can’t help but recognize that all the euphemisms I’ve been told about life are kind of spot on.
If you think about it, life is really just a series of hello’s and goodbye’s. I don’t mean that in a negative way. You constant meet new people, you are introduced to new experiences, you go to new places, and you get new things. And then, just as those people, experiences, places and things come into your life, they often exit. Sometimes in a dramatic way, like death. Sometimes in an unnoticeable way, like two acquaintances simply go their separate ways. And sometimes in a “purge” way, where you actively remove them from your life — kinda like cleaning out your closet.
It’s not even the end of January, and I can already feel the transition in my life that 2019 brings. It’s interesting, but not scary. I have a new attitude, my mind is peaceful, and I can feel that my body is physically happy for the first time in over a year. It’s a wonderful feeling. In addition, I know that there will be some significant hello’s and goodbye’s in my near future in different ways. And that feeling is both happy and sad, but mostly a relief! Some goodbye’s are easier than others, and I will have some people in my life forever. That said, I’m ready for new adventures, new challenges, and new experiences. And all that newness is — simply put — kickass.
Speaking of new. We need a new breakfast recipe, stat. So here’s what I’m trying out for this week’s meal prep: Green Chile Egg Casserole from Stay Fit Mom. Note that I may grab some breakfast turkey sausage to go with it if my macros allow.
