If there is something in your life you don’t like, your weight, your job, whatever, and you don’t do anything about it, all you are doing is bitching. Until you change it, you are just bitching. Change can be good, and we all change each day, in one way or another, and for the most part, I’m not a fan of it. That is about to change. My life will be changing every week for the next five years. Different State Park, different town and state.
Change is an everyday thing. When you get married, that is a significant change. Now you have to get use to living and sharing your life with someone else. Every day! That is a marvellous thing but, what if you change. We all change whether it is good or bad, and for the most part, the changes we make are for the better. But what happens when we change and grow in different directions? That is when the trouble starts. Having the same morals, values and goals are an excellent thing as long as you change together.
My move was a significant change for me and I am getting use to living here. I have more than I want and all that I need. This is a pleasant change as I will be soon living in a 31’ long RV for several years. I am deciding now what I HAVE to take with me to live. It’s not much, I can tell you that.
I don’t consider myself a materialistic person but, I do like nice things. I was probably more materialistic in my younger years than I am now. I had the big house, pool, country club membership. I had it all but, I was not happy, and to everyone on the outside I looked as if I had the perfect life. I was miserable. Something needed to change. All that stuff created a lot of stress. It was a lot of upkeep and at considerable expense. I do however believe that when you buy something; buy the best you can afford. It will pay off in the end. That part of my life has been a favourable change. I don’t care anymore. If all of that is important to you then go for it. But does it make you happy? If you are honest, no it doesn’t.
All of the changes I have been making over the past year has had the simple goal of getting me ready for this extraordinary journey I am about to take. The changes have been positive and have come easily. I have discovered over time that when I’ve had to fight for something, or it seemed as if there was one obstacle after another in front of me blocking something I wanted or wanted to do, I should have walked away. It was not meant to be. Unfortunately, my personality won’t let me do that. I never quit. That is something I certainly need to change. I need to learn to let go.
Our attitude is the biggest thing in our lives that we can change, and it is our attitude that affects every aspect of our lives. I have realized that if I am in a crappy mood, putting on something nice and a pair heels changes your whole attitude. You can usually tell my attitude by the way I am dressed, and I have gone home to change my clothes to change my attitude. Try it, it works!
Big changes are a comin, and I can’t help but to smile when I think about what is fixen to happen! You can join me on this journey at www.facebook.com/backtrax2011

I’ve recently learnt about knowing when to quit – I used to never give up bit have now learned the lesson of knowing when to quit is key!
