Tretar 20, Embracing the Change

[This post is the twentieth in an ongoing series for Project Tretar. You can read previous posts here]

I can’t believe the year has gone by so quickly. I myself have seen so much happening in these 10 months and its incredible that this is already the 20th post on Tretar! This picture is from an earlier travel where I had lost my way in a little village in New Zealand. It was one of the first times I had started venturing alone and getting lost scared me.

I remember that little fear of getting lost and being on my own. It was the onset of a change. And, what can define you more than the changes? I believe it is all about how we react to the changes in our lives that shape our character. Losing happiness, losing people, losing livelihood, losing love, losing identity – in general, its those big losses that force us to react. Those either destroy you or transform you. If you survive, you come out a different person. Everyone tries to fight the change – we, humans, hate change. We cannot deal with changes, they make us get out of our comfort zone and who wants that? But sometimes, I feel they are for the best. They will make you cry but they will help you find yourself. Until you deal with the loss, you can never make new beginnings. And from that, comes the important part that you need to deal with the loss and close it. You need to write it off and set out on a new journey. Don’t mourn for rest of your life; embrace the change and rise. A better chapter awaits you. 

Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole woman.Maya Angelou
