Hi everyone, my name is Jane and this is my post about embracing change.

I am a person who likes to feel safe, and sure about everything, especially the future. So, when things start to change around me, I have a tendency to hold on to them a little too long, until I have no other option than letting them go, and still I will find it hard to let it go. This year has definitely been a year of change for me. I lost some friends, things weren't working out for me anymore, they were hurting me, so it was time to let go. And I can honestly say right now, at this moment, that I am genuily happy that things have changed, the way they did.

Here are some things I learned while I was letting go, enjoy!

1. Change is a thing you can count on ~ Miley Cyrus
Change is inevitable. You want things to stay the same, because it feels more safe, secure. But no matter what, it is settled; the seasons will change, people will change, each one goes his way, and there is nothing you can do about it, so embrace it.

2. Change will make you grow
It will hurt, it will scare the crap out of you, you will feel lost. But believe me, the way you handle change will make you grow. You will find new ways to do things, to handle life. You will discover parts of yourself you didn't even know they existed. You will learn so much about yourself. You will become wiser by everything you have learned, and that only will make you grow

3 What truly is yours, will always be yours
The people who love you and who are meant to be in your life will stay, no matter what. They will help you through it, and they too will make you grow. Sometimes, when someone leaves, you just have to let them go. If they truly are yours, they will find their way back to you. If they don't want to stay, they aren't meant to stay in your life. Believe me, there is a reason why they come and go.

4 Believe in yourself
I think deep down, you know that some things have to change, trust your instinct. When something hurts you, or keeps you down, it is time to let it go, even though you don't feel ready, Sometimes it is easier to just cut it out of your life, instead of trying to keep things the way they used to be. You will end up hurting yourself more. You can do this, you are stronger than you think. It will take a little while but you will realize why things had to change the way they did.

God has a plan for you, trust Him and trust yourself.
love xx Jane
