555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 110.
Time Awake: 7:00 a.m.
The process of becoming Mike 2.0 involves change and has to involve change if I want to improve myself from where I am now to where I want to be.
I’m not sure what part of that I wasn’t expecting. Change I expected. The volume of change? Maybe the sheer volume of change all at once.
All I know is that what I have been learning recently is that people who were a part of my Life aren’t necessarily fitting anymore. Hobbies don’t fit anymore. Habits. None of these fit anymore.
And for a bit I was taken aback, “It’s all happening at once.” But via talking to someone else I received the perspective: Yes, Mike, this is what happens when you are bettering yourself as a person. So accept all of the change that goes on.
Maybe it’s a lot. What I’m learning is that what is not changing is my foundation, the fundamentals. My kindness, my compassion, my love. These factors are Me and will always be Me, regardless of how long my hair is or what shirt I wear.
That’s Me. That’s going to stay.
And then there will be days like today, full of contentment, enjoyment. I’ve come to realize that part of this change is you take the difficult and the great. It’s all part of the same journey that eventually will lead wherever it is I am going.
It’s all a journey anyway, a forever journey. Venture on, Mike. Venture on.
