Change is a funny thing. Although most people say they want to change — so they can have a better life, with more love, more dreams, and more fun — the fact is that many of us are afraid of change. Faced with the real prospect of it, we look at our lives and decide that being where we are right now isn’t so bad, after all. Better the devil you know than the one you don’t, we tell ourselves. … It’s a place where your life isn’t really that great, but it really isn’t that bad, either. It’s just so-so.
Well, I happen to think that life should be better than “not that bad” and more than “just so-so.” Life should be exciting, challenging, and — ultimately — fulfilling.
