I can’t remember where I heard this, but it’s stuck with me.
Human beings are defined by change.
Jacob and I are going through a lot of changes right now, feeling rather human. Jacob just started a full-time job that is very different than anything he’s come into contact with. I’m halfway through my Bachelor’s Degree and we are looking for an apartment.
I’m also working to get some of my work published. I have a story I’m working on for Writers of the Future and I’m still trying to prepare my novel for this fall. Talk about big time changes!
What about you guys? How big does a change have to get to remind you of your humanity? What kinds of changes feel surreal, and what kinds don’t?
Jacob and I have been through a lot this past year. But right now, I feel more alive than ever before.
I’ll keep you posted.
