This blogging challenge is all about Risk! My word for the year!
C is for Change. There is so much change in this world. Everyday I am bombarded with change as I scroll through social media, or talk to friends. We are all constantly going through changes.
Most change involves risk. The risk of friends, and family. The risk of money, the risk of reputation. The risk of rejection, acceptance. All of these things are involved in change.
I love change. I love experiencing new places, meeting new people, and utilizing new skills at jobs I take on. I have risked a lot in my life due to the changes I have taken part of.
Moving overseas, going to school to get my B.S. and M.A. Opening up to people, getting involved in community. All of these have been changes in my life.
Can you think of the biggest change you have ever gone through? I think for me it was recently. I had a couple of friends that I had been hanging out with quite a bit all of a sudden just leave my life. When you lose people you get used to hanging out with, it feels like you risked part of yourself for no reason. It is also a big change. You try to fill the void with other things, but there is still that void.
To change something is to risk. I think that we have to change. If we don't then our life turns into something that is boring and not worth it. To change means to risk.
What changes have you made, and what were the risks?
