Today is my first day back in my old building. I have to say it’s been interesting seeing people I haven’t seen in four months: some friends and some colleagues, some who knew you had left out and others who didn’t. It’s also nice being told to come back to where you just left from.
All in all it’s been a good day. There’s not much to say, since this feeds back into the change blogs I’ve been finding myself typing lately.
Change isn’t bad. Sometimes, it’s better; others, it’s worse. But change is inevitable. Change is part of life. Change is… .
I don’t know what else to say about change. Feelings change; people change; situations and worlds change. Nothing is constant.
Today’s change was me. I’m not the same person who left four months ago. And I get to own that! I get to be different, even with people who expected me to come back the same. I get to be the change in a world and atmosphere that seems to be stagnant.
How awesome is that?
So today, I walked into a new job in an old agency. I walked an old route that I’ve walked almost every work day for the last few years, but I’m not the same.
At least I hope not anymore.
