Being Mindful of Change

Change, a word that hold so many emotions, thoughts, and actions. A part of us welcomes change and yet sometimes always makes us wary of its presence. Change has a way of gradually welcoming itself or sometimes it just slams into our face like a distracted bug.

Here is what the May & June 2016 have looked like:

  1. Graduated from Columbia College Chicago (5/14)
  2. Went to Hawaii (5/17)
  3. Left my job at Crystal Life (Last Sunday 6/5)
  4. Got a job in the city (Chicago) as a Marketing Coordinator (found out in May)
  5. Got an apartment in the Gold Coast (Found out Today 6/9)
  6. Plan to move to the city mid- july (Decided Yesterday 9/8)

I think it’s safe to say that I know how crazy beautiful & stressful change can be. I am starting to realize how blessed I are to experience life to this degree. I am finally regaining my breath and taking the time to examine how I feel.
