If you saw yourself from a year ago, would "old" you even recognize "new" you? If you talked to yourself from a year ago, how many things would you have to explain or clear up? We changed. We all have. Some exponentially. The world is drastically different and so are our goals and aspirations.
I am now learning German. I started playing the ukulele and the viola. I want to get my doctorate after I graduate from grad school. I started my own business and am getting ready to make it an LLC. I've changed. We've changed.
I don't believe in coincidences, so I think we were built for these changes. I believe these changes were predesigned and there was no way that we would be able to accomplish our life mission and dreams without these changes. Some days were horrible and some days not so horrible. But everyday, we grew. And even now, every day we grow.
