Why is starting over so difficult?
A wiser man than me taught, "All growth takes place outside of our comfort zone." And I am certainly well outside my comfort zone. But I don't know how much I'm really growing.
Perhaps I need to be patient with myself. After all, these things take time. I just feel like I'm starting over in every aspect of my life. A new town. A new ward. A new house. A new (old) body. A new attempt at exercise. A new little baby. A new budget. A new job. Trying to make new friends. And I'm not feeling as successful as I hoped I'd be.
I'm not trying to complain. Most of the changes are for the best. But it doesn't make them easier.
Here's to doing better than I have been, as I strive to find balance in my new life. Here's to learning things all over again as our lives change. And here's to growing amidst it all.
