CHANGE is a word that can bring either fear or excitement.

For me about 6years ago the word CHANGE brought me fear. You see I was in a job that I had been in for about 14 years and yes I loved it but I had become stuck. There wasn’t anywhere for me to go in the industry and I love learning and I needed to be challenged.  I wanted to leave but I was afraid, afraid of change, afraid of letting go of the old and embracing the new.

I finally left that job in December 2010 and at first I was devastated, I was completely wrecked.

What was I going to do now, was the cry from my heart.

I had to take a leap of faith, for me it was like stepping off a cliff and wondering if there was anything to catch me. Well yes there was something there to catch me.

I had been so consumed with my job that I really hadn’t taken time of for holidays, to explore life, to slow down and to really listen to that still small voice saying this is the way Tracey walk in it.

So I slowed down, it took me a while.

I rediscovered who I was.

I had space to just be, space to explore and space to catch up with others.

Change can be scary, but now I find it exciting.

In the last 4 years I have been on a rollercoaster ride of discovery, of learning, of excitement, or developing who I am and who I am meant to be.

My days are never the same and I love that I really do.

I am growing in my career and I am grateful for the opportunities that I have been given.

Now the word change, I do not fear you.

Change I embrace you, change I welcome you and change you make my life exciting.

Change for me now is truly discovering who I am and what I am called to be.

Change opens the door to new opportunities.

This week I encourage you to open the door to change and see what happens.

Will share more soon.
