For many people change is a scary thing. And I would be lying if I said I was entirely comfortable with change. You see, I'm the kind of guy who likes to have a certain level of control in his life. To know what's coming and how to deal with it. But lately I have seen some changes coming that have pretty much turned my life upside down. Personal changes that is. First there is my job that didn't turn out the way I wanted it to be. So much for being in control. I took a jump in the deep and threw in the towel. I quit. Luckily for me I found another one while I was in the process of quitting. Still the change is a big one and with a future that is unforeseen. Secondly, for technical reasons we were forced to find another apartment. Now we live in this wonderful apartment and I simply couldn't imagine ever living somewhere else. Honestly we did play with the idea of moving a few times, but we could never cut the knot. It is funny however, how easy it gets when you are kind of forced to do so. Once again, in the time when the need is the highest, the salvation was near. We found a great place. For several weeks now we are working in it and it is almost ready for us to move in.
Change is scary, no matter how you look at it. But if you cannot accept it, yes, embrace it, you will never move on. Never discover new things that can enrich your life. And so, while I'm writing this letter, and realize this is the probably the last editor's letter I will be writing in this apartment, on this particular place where I have written about 3,000 articles over the past years, I cannot help myself thinking that I am also excited about these changes that are taking place in my life right now. The job that I started this week. The apartment we are moving in in 2 weeks. A new life with new challenges, new disappointments and new successes. And while anticipating this all, I realize that no change is scary if you can do it with your loved ones. My boyfriend, my dog. The ones I keep close to my heart. Every change is overcomeable if you have these constants to do it with. –BM-
