Empowerment

came a teenager, I would change my hair whenever I needed a change. Ever since I learned that “the only thing that is constant is change” (Heraclitus), it has taken a new form in my life. I am in the final months of my twenties and between my professional and personal visions for myself, change is the priority above all things because I understand that I must do different things to get different results.

Doing things differently does not always mean changing everything or making a drastic change. The change can be as simple as changing the way that you think when it is time to do chores at home or time to have a meeting with your least favorite colleague. Whenever I set a new goal, considering the changes that I will implement to accomplish it excites me. All changes are not ideal, like waking up earlier, exercising, or eating healthier, but the ultimate change-the goal met-is worth it all. There is magic in doing things differently.

Based on the goals that I have accomplished in 2018 alone, it’s been worth it.

 

I have always embraced change. When I was a kid and I needed a change, I would change my sleeping position/location or rearrange my room. As I be-
