I'm realizing I'm growing, developing, changing, and become more of who I am. It's not easy, but it's not supposed to be. If it wasn't hard, it wouldn't be worth it.
We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves. ~Lynn Hall
So since I love quotations, and they soothe me when things are "not boring", I'm including some here for your viewing pleasure.
When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves. ~Victor Frankl
If we're growing, we're always going to be out of our comfort zone. ~John Maxwell
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~Anatole France
But really -
It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory. ~W. Edwards Deming
Personally though, I don't want to survive - I want to thrive.

Remote from human connection
Secluded in apartness
To the exclusion of all others and all else
The heart as the source of emotion
To face pain
With spirit and bravery
In spite of criticism
