I’m sure everyone has heard of the saying “change is as good as a holiday“. People are naturally creatures of habit so change is inevitability met with much resistance. However, some people do adapt better to change than others and once you realise that change is not always a bad thing, you’ll be more open to it and as the saying goes, it really is as good as a holiday.
I for one enjoy change. I might not be the one to initiate it all the time, but I do always try to find the positive in situations that have changed. For one, Karina and I are busy planning to move to Cape Town for a year. To us, that’s massive change. Change in scenery, change in lifestyle, change in our social life, change in our work schedule and change just for the sake of trying something new! It’s scary yet exciting all at once.
So, if you feeling a little down or uninspired, try changing something in your life. Even the most basic of changes could brighten things up. Try joining the gym, moving your furniture around, change your working hours (if possible), organise more braai’s and dinners with your friends or buy some new clothes. Its the little things in life that sometimes bring us the most joy.
