Love it, Hate it or Deal with it
I am not stranger to change, some I had to chance to choose, some were dumped on me, but I don’t mind it… I love it, in most forms anyway!
Like moving to a new house. It isn’t the funnest thing to do in the world. It can be a weird mix of excitement, nerves, happiness and maybe a dash of crippling debt, but it’s a type of change I don’t mind.
This Saturday, I will be moving in with one of my best friends.
We will have the fun of trying to figure out where things should live, getting used to each other’s routines, finding out how weird we both are to live with and either we’ll match the level of weirdness, or we will scar the other one for life.
Even though this will be my first time moving in with a close friend, this isn’t my first move.
In fact, this will be move number 15… I think.
I mean, after a while you just stop counting.
I wish I could say all those house moves was over my whole life, but that would be a lie. It’s over 8 years (so almost an average of 2 times a year).
There was usually a reason for a move. It wasn’t just because I hate money and want to waste it on “administration fees” (don’t get me started).
Usually, it was because I was ready for change. I needed a change; things could have been stagnant, and I hoped that this was a positive move in the right direction.
Whether you are a fast-paced human or like things at a slower pace. I think that change – as scary as it can be- can be good for you.
And you may be thinking, “Why is Meg writing about this?”
It could be because I think you shouldn’t wait for positive change to come to you. And if yours is getting a new job, then come and talk to us at OX Seven to get the ball rolling!
But the real reason is that the OX Seven Xmas party is the day before I move, and I need all the help I can get.
Any volunteers let me know!
