It’s funny how a cliche quote from your senior year high school year book listing can have so much accuracy. Just when you think you’re starting to get a handle on something, what you thought you knew is demonstrated to be different, and I was reminded today.
Different isn’t necessarily bad, though – it’s the expectation, the perspective you put on that difference that ultimately controls the outcome. Change means growth, even if it’s not the direction you planned it in. Just have to remember that in the moment.
