Alas, the Traveling Halbury expires. I have returned from my travels, settled in, and begun the the next stage in my life. Though I am positive my travels will continue in the future, for now I need to focus on other things in life and I thought a change up in the blog was necessary.
Spare some change? Why?
One thing that I have discovered about myself is that I resist change. I don't like returning to my hometown to find 5 new restaurant chains, 7 new housing developments, a Borders, a Costco, and a friggin Jamba Juice- even if it means convenience. I don't particularly enjoy meeting up with an old friend only to find out that our lives have taken us in opposite directions. I definitely don't enjoy clouds coming in to cover up the sun that I was enjoying.
But there are new towns to see, new friends to make, and sun waiting to evaporate any obstruction. It is ironic to consistently resist change when I find myself in such a transitory part of my life. Returning from travels, finding a home, finding a job, low on money, and with no real plan or direction.
This blog is a creation to help me accept the many changes that I am sure to encounter in the coming moments of my life. Some change is bad, some change is good, but change is always constant. I hope to embrace the good and the bad, let it change me, and adapt to the new circumstances that it may create for my life.
I ask you, loyal blog readers, to think about change in your life (be it good or bad)- Can you spare some change?
