One of my many backyard tūī pals. Among the six that regularly hang out in my neighbour’s tree, one of them is a juvenile and is er... learning how to manage having two voice boxes. He’s not the most tuneful - he sounds more like an angry teenage boy but you gotta admire his perseverance... even after half an hour of screeching!
I’ve always been terrified of change. If something was going “okay” then why couldn’t I just be content with that? However, I think I’ve gotten it all wrong. Change can be exciting and fun. It’s gripping to the edge of your seat eagerly waiting to find out what’s behind the next door. Change is those butterflies inside your stomach that are begging to be let out and escape into the sky. And you know what, I need better than “okay.” It’s not just that I need it, I deserve it. And whatever “it” is, I’m not stopping till I have my hands wrapped around it. These past months I’ve traveled so far outside of my comfort zone, I think it’s about time I expanded the borders of it. After going back and forth the last year and a half I finally made the big decision to step down at my job. I constantly was asked, “Is this the smart decision? Is this really what’s best for you?” My answer is simply, who knows. But I’m tired of being content with just OKAY. I want more, and whatever happens I know it will be worth it because at least I’m fighting for it. So here’s to hoping this new job is everything I need it to be, here’s to all the new adventures I’m going to be embarking on, and all the new friendships I’ll be creating along the way. So yes, change is still extremely terrifying, but let me tell you I couldn’t be more ready for all these new beginnings. Let’s do this! #liveBANGS#BANGSblitz
