A lot of change has been happening in my life lately and this week I think it's all hitting me.
I retired from clinical dentistry.
We are moving out of our downtown apartment to a home in the burbs next week.
We have a baby on the way.
So my career, home and family are all changing.
All of these things are changes for the good.
But it doesn't necessarily feel that way....
I'm not proud of it but my mind has found the small "negatives" in all of these things.
I pride myself on being an optimist so when negative thoughts creep into my mind and I allow them to influence my thought patterns - it bothers me.... alot.
Some of the thoughts and questions that have been running through my head are:
"When we move to the new house - I can't just go outside for a walk around lady bird lake during the day"
"I can't just walk down the block to grab a coffee because there aren't any within walking distance"
"Whole foods and trader joe's aren't a 2 minute walk anymore"
"I will have to get in my car to drive anywhere since the neighborhood isn't as walkable or nice"
"I'm going to become complacent being in the suburbs and won't be growing as much" (my biggest fear)
"When we have the baby will I be able to focus on and grow my business or will everything go to shit?"
I realized I am afraid.
Afraid of "losing" all the growth and positive changes that have happened in my life over the last 3 years.
This thought is ironic because everything has NOT been so great the last 3 years. There were several obstacles and barriers I overcame to create this life that I am living.
But my MINDSET throughout all of it was positive - this is what has set the tone for my experiences.
This is the power that we control.
I realize some of these things are very much 1st world problems... but they're real thoughts of mine.
I am trying to practice gratitude and NOT compare my current chapter in life to the next.
I have been talking to Neha and my therapist about all these thoughts and I am working on trusting myself to be able to adapt.
Change is not easy.
Change is hard.
I try to keep the updates on this newsletter as real as possible with you guys.
If you have ever experienced these thoughts when you've undergone change in life - you are not alone.
If you want to chat about any of this or have any words of encouragement/advice - hit reply - I'd love to hear from you 😊
