Embracing Change

Happy hump day, people!

Last week you may (or may not) have noticed I was pretty quiet. In a spirit of honesty, it’s because a lot of things in my life have been changing. No one loves change (or maybe you do and I respect that), but this girl especially doesn’t. I don’t know why I felt like I needed to share what’s been happening in my life as of late, but here it goes.

These past couple months have been full of change for me, some of which include: some of my favorite co-workers quitting the firm, my friends moving across the state…or across the country, people getting promoted, weekends spent being a part of weddings on weddings, and meeting my friends’ babies (seriously, how am I old enough for this!?). At the end of the day, it just kind of all hit me at once. It seems that “my people” are in this season of change, which in turn means our relationships are too.

Oh, and the #QuarterCenturyCrisis hit too. But I digress. 🙂

What I have learned about change – you just have to face it and embrace it. Why? Because you can’t avoid it. As cliche as it is, change really is the only thing that is constant in our lives.

I was at dinner with one of co-workers and talking about his decision to leave. Soon enough, we found ourselves chatting about the ever encouraging book of Ecclesiastes (hear me out, people). The first time I read this book was when I was studying for the CPA (…LOL…) and this past week, I’ve been revisiting the truth I found during that super fun season of my life (I’m still thankful for it..but I’m still glad it’s over). In Chapter 3, we find the author opening with how there is a time for everything.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…

And the author goes on to list on all the things in life that we experience, which is a lot. We always seem to be going from one thing / feeling / job / season to the next one because, well, that’s life. We can’t avoid it. We can’t be doing the same thing forever. Life ain’t that easy, people!

While life is complex and constantly changing, we can find rest in one thing – that the Lord who has saved us and sustains us has perfectly orchestrated all of it for our good. And when we believe that, we can be pumped for what the next season will hold.
