For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. It’s Newton’s third law and something I heard over and over in middle school. With every decision we make, there’s going to be some sort of response. Whether this is negative or positive, it can be the catalyst for change.
I’ve been anxious lately, uneasy in my decisions and my way of doing things. I know that a change needs to take place. Not sure if that’s in my relationships, career, or what. All I know is that I’m not in a calm state of being, which is where I’d like to be.
I had a moment of honesty last night with a friend. I had asked him a question and was straight with me in what had to be done. As difficult as what I’m feeling is I do need to find a way to get past this. It’s all in the action and then reacting in a way that will move me forward. I’ve been letting those I’ve known for years dictate my thoughts, which is an old pattern that no longer suites me. Because I know what I need to do to get what I want. I’m just not sure if what I want is here anymore.
With discomfort comes change. Things are shifting for me. My thoughts, who I feel closest with, where I see myself next year. What I want for my future is different now from where it was a month ago. I’m not sure what caused this shift but it happened and it’s changing my views of people and the places I’m going.
