Today we're about to get a little personal here on PNP. 

I mean, after a little over two and half years I think it's finally time for me to open up to you all a little. We are all friends here after all, right?

I'll be the first to admit that I hate changes.

I've just never been good at accepting changes and I live through solid routines. It's probably the reason why I have never changed the cut or color of my hair, or the fact that I have to sit in the same seat every class or I swear it messes with my mojo. 

I knew coming into 2017 that it would be the year of many changes. This year would be the year of so many firsts and so many lasts, which is probably the main reason why it was so hard for me to say goodbye to 2016 (did I mention that I'm not good at goodbyes either? But that's another post for another day). 

In 2017 I'll be starting a my last semester in college, starting a new internship, experiencing my last spring break, graduating, (hopefully) starting a full time job, and experiencing what ever life decides to throw at me. And you know what? I'm terrified. Not knowing the unknown is such a scary thing. 

I've always heard that successful people accept and like changes because it means growth. And we all want to be successful, right? 

I know that all changes aren't bad. I mean, I moved out of my tiny town August of 2013 to head to Charlotte for college and that was a big change for me. Did I like it at first? Lol, nope. Being in such a big city (which btw, was MASSIVE compared to my hometown) and knowing pratically no one (thank goodness I had RJ though) was such a scary thing to me. But fast forward three years later and I couldn't image myself anywhere else now. 

Sure, changes are scary. Sure, not knowing what the exact outcome would be is terrifying (main reason why I can't gamble). But, change is what help us grow and learn. I mean, without changes we'd all still be in our awkward middle school stages and I think we all can be grateful that we had outgrew that stage. 

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I want to stop being afraid of change. I know that all changes aren't always going to be good, but I know that there's always something to be learned from them. 

So here's to you 2017. Here's to a year full of many changes and growth. I'm ready to accept you with open arms and heck, maybe I will finally decide to change either my cut or color of my hair this year - who knows. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
