Courage to Change

I've never really embraced change.  I grew up with that old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."  But as I grow older, I see the best moments in my life came from having the courage to make changes.  Sometimes I took big leaps, other times I only took baby steps.  I didn't always land on my feet but each new step brought growth. I am at a great destination right now, but is that it? I don't want my map of life to be one long straight road.  I will forge ahead, and though I still am wary of taking a wrong turn, I will try to have the courage to go down new roads.  

What new roads have you taken lately?

  1. I love this. Life is all about changes. And taking chances. IMO change is good and makes life more interesting. Is it possible to want too much change? I may be guilty of that ....

  2. Change is a tough one, but I'm usually so glad when I've taken the step!

    A great C post.

  3. Nice to meet you. It really does take courage to change. The biggest change for me has been in my attitude, specially as far as publishers and agents are concerned. I've been a writer most of my life and a member of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers for over 16 years. All that time I've been told to go the traditional route. But with the current economic trend publishers have very little money for unknown authors. So I followed the advice of many and self published.

  4. Great post! Change is difficult we teeter and totter sometimes. It reminds me a bit of my post. Nice to meet you~

  5. A very inspiring C word and excellent to read.

    Thanks for visiting,


  6. Thanks everyone for your comments. Nice to meet so many new people in the A to Z challenge.

    PK- I don't think it's bad to have too much change unless you're rearranging the living room every day!

    Talli- I agree once the step is taken, I feel much better.

    N.R.- Congratulations on your book! I've been thinking about going the self publishing route myself.

    Ella and Poetry- Thanks for stopping by.
