Change for the better

We all get comfortable in our day-to-day lives. Some people are so set in their ways that they would never consider changing their hair color... or hairstyle for that matter! Many of us avoid change because we don’t know what it will bring or how it will affect us. But the fact is, change happens, even when we’re satisfied with the status quo. I personally came face to face with this recently when we had some staff changes at my company (employees left, new people were hired). When change comes suddenly and takes you by surprise, you often react by insisting you were in a happy place… that things were fine just the way they were. But then soon after the scene shifts, you realize the change has actually resulted in something better. Change provides a new outlook, a new vision, new direction.

For me, the change turned out to be beyond all expectations. My new employees are simply fantastic and I am so grateful to have them on my team. The experience reminded me to embrace change. And you should too—whether it’s changing jobs, changing your diet, or changing your relationships... it might seem scary or overwhelming at first, but trust that it happened for a good reason. Once you embrace the change and open yourself up to the possibilities, you’ll find that there’s always something bigger and better right around the corner.

  1. Great point, David! I recently left my steady income at my boring old job and took a mostly commission based position as an event manager for a gorgeous venue (if you are ever in Pittsburgh, let me know! lol). With my husband being unemployed right now, it was a scary decision, but I am loving every second. I am still unsure what the future holds, but I know I made the right decision. Being happy in my day job has made me such a better person to my friends, to my family and just in general. Sometimes you just have to take the leap of faith!

  2. That's really beautiful David!
    It's true: when you embrace change, everything flows more easily, and like you said, it turns out better than you imagined! Thanks for sharing your thoughts...
    I watched a few episodes of your show for the first time yesterday on "WE" and I was so impressed by your genuine love for what you do and your expertise, but mostly your love and care for each bride.
    Much Love,
    Angela
