Welcome to the first Sunshine Sunday for 2015. This week the theme is Change. The link is at the bottom of the post for anyone who wants to join in with their posts.
The New Year brings out a lot of self reflection in people and bids for change are made, changes to help us to be better people. While I think that change doesn’t adhere to timetable and that we can make those changes whenever we wish, I think that if the ticking over of the calendar year gives you the push you need, then that’s not a bad thing.
At this time last I made the resolution to make no resolutions. I thought I was being clever and getting rid of the guilt that would come with failed goals. I was wrong. No goals and not making what I wanted for myself meant that I was left floundering. I had no point to work towards and there were a lot of things in my life that suffered. Instead of living, I was merely surviving.
This year I have goals (which I’ll be revealing on the blog tomorrow) to work towards. I have a calendar on the wall that is big enough to write about my goals. I was also given a daily calendar where I can make goals so I am hoping to make use of that too. I am hoping that with a place to work towards that I will move forward instead of floundering.
Change can be scary, sometimes it is better the devil you know. However I know that the world is moving and turning out there without me. I know that unless I start rolling with the punches more that I will be left behind. I know that my anxiety about change is holding me back, but I also know that life is a series of baby steps, both backwards and forwards so it’s not as scary as I think.
Does change scare you?
Have you made the decision to change anything in 2015?

I don’t think you’re every really scared of change you make happen, because you can make it happen at the speed you want, and you know it’s a good change. Change forced on you is a little different though, you’re not ready or it’s not a good change….that is scary!
Change doesn’t scare me, but fighting the different personalities living inside my head every fucking day does make doing anything – or at least anything that requires extra effort and commitment for any length of time – a tiny bit difficult. Still, we solider onward 🙂
I look forward to hearing about your plans for the future. We have started by making a goal each day to start with. With the bigger pictures in mind of course, we are moving toward them all the time. Right now we are both working on ourselves and working together. Lots of growing for us this year I think 🙂
Hello Tegan, thanks for the invite to join your linky :-). I don’t like resolutions too, they are so easy to forget. However, I agree that it wise to have goals to work towards, otherwise it is very easy to walk aimlessly and waste time. Change indeed can be frightening , but also exciting when embrassed. Life is full of change and there’s nothing we can do to stop this.
Thanks for hosting this linky, do you have any linky rules / expectations? Do you have a hastag to promote it on social media? Is this different from your The Lounge Facebook linky?
The only real ‘rule’ I have is that the post is around the theme of change. Or at least has the word change in it. When you link it up, just share it on twitter then tag me in it @misguidedmuser so I can retweet it for you. This one is different from The Lounge, which is held on Thursday. I also share the hosting of that one with another blogger. Just keep an eye on The Lounge Facebook page for updates about what the theme is each week.
Thanks loads, and thanks for reading my post and commenting on it so quickly. I’ve read the post before mine and
your post and commented on them.
I asked about the rules because many linkys I join require you to read e.g. the 2 links before yours etc. That way, everyone gets some linky love 🙂
I’ll like ‘The Lounge’ page to make it easier to remember to join the linky whenever I can. Glad to have ‘net-met’.
Have a lovely week. #SunshineSunday
I don’t really like forcing people to comment, but it’s just good Bloggy Karma to make sure to comment on at least some of the posts linked up. You only get out of a link up what you are willing to put in 🙂
Thanks Tegan 🙂 I definitely enjoyed reading your post and the post before my link. Enjoy your Sunday 🙂
You are right changes can be really scary. I know it’s quite scary to embark on a new journey/plans in 2015 but I am also excited about it. Wishing you a wonderful 2015! 🙂
