So much is changing a my school. People are moving on from positions, getting promoted, and everything is just up in the air.

I never thought I hated change, but I am definitely one to say that feeling comfortable is nice. I like it when I know I will see certain people in certain places saying certain things. The certainty and knowledge that it will happen makes me feel good and safe.

When change happens, I think people are quick to jump into the “I hate change” boat. As much as it feels weird, change is necessary to become better people. Take next year for example: For the first time I will be in area that I am not familiar with. As much as I am excited for it, I am still nervous and scared.

My take on change is that it is necessary, but we may not always appreciate it. New opportunities are always occurring, and we need to think big picture. Our success is what we make it, and that often includes change.

Remember to always be open and remember to utilize the people around us to succeed in mastering the change around us.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” -Barack Obama
