Change is hard, yo! (so hard that I'm compelled to punctuate this statement with a completely uncharacteristic interjection) - even for someone who lives fairly far along the spectrum of adventurousness. Our brains love habit, consistency with an addictive ferocity - ESPECIALLY when that habit gives you love, comfort, and security. And yet almost all evidence (biological, social, creative) urges us towards change, towards the new, to evolve - ESPECIALLY if we feel that itch of something not quite being the right fit for us. TRUST THE ITCH. Particularly during these scary, uncomfortable, and even sad times of change we have to trust that we CHOSE to leave people, places, and things because they no longer served our highest good. Not only trust, but celebrate! Look back with so much gratitude and learn from it but celebrate that you chose change to better yourself - how awesome is that!? Go you!:) On that note I'm sharing some things about LA that make me happy - because gratitude is the muscle that assists change. Top of the list is my fricking backyard: Santa Monica State Beach - and that it's sometimes foggy enough for this pale-assed vampire to do yoga on the beach. This place calms me down more than I can say. All in all, a pretty huge thing to be thankful for.
