Jenn of clothesencounters on YouTube is one of my fav personalities when it comes to fashion and vlogs. She graduated from UC Davis a few years ago. Last year, she moved into a house in Oakland,CA and this video is a tour of said house. She is now in Los Angeles, of course…
I wanted to share this video because I wanted to talk about the great things that comes from taking charge and stepping outside of your comfort zone. A lot of times we get stuck in one place, not because we are comfortable and happy, but because staying where you are is easy and change can be difficult and scary.
Change can also put us in a lonely place. Change can alienate us from the people that we know. How? Through change, we grow. Other people are not growing. We out grow many of our childhood friends. There are many people out there who are 30 on the outside, but are still 16 in the inside. Some people want to stay 21 forever and they go the extra mile to do so.
I believe that the cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.
When I started to invite change into my life, I felt like I had a new lease on life. Each time, major change proved to be a little overwhelming at times, but that’s how I know I was heading in the right direction. Feeling like I wanted to give up was a good sign. It meant that there was something worth giving up.
Every year, I look forward to all of life’s challenges. I know now that the steeper the climb, the more rewarding it is once I reach the top.
