Change is inevitable. The four seasons are great illustrators of change and remind us of our lack of control in the never-ending change process. We all know that we can't stop time but it doesn't keep us from trying by holding on tightly to the bitter end. Us patio lovers gather for as long as possible until the snow eventually drives us inside.
Why is it so hard to let go?
Last week, while I was planning to return to the Dominican Republic, I procrastinated until the very last minute to pack. Not sure exactly what I was waiting for... I was excited to go back, who wouldn't? It is a tropical paradise and I have a lot to come back for! But I couldn´t bring myself to load up my stuff, say goodbye to my loved ones and jump yet again into the unknown that is always paired with change.
Addictions like overeating, overspending, overdrinking? What about excessive cleaning or complaining about unrelated things? Do you snap at people or completely tune out when something is changing in your life? Do you get stressed out?
