“You don’t fear change. You fear the unknown. If you knew the future would be great, you’d welcome change to get there. Well, the future IS great. Proceed.” -Joe Vitale
New This Year:
- Monthly Budget
- No vehicle
- Living in Community
- Feelings & Emotions
I could go on and on but the point is that any one of these things is enough to make you feel uncomfortable at first, let alone all of them. I have been in Sacramento for about four months now and it has gotten easier but it took time and a lot of work. Whenever I start a new job, I put my heart and soul into learning everyone and everything there is to know in order to be the best worker I can be. The difference this year is that I didn’t have my comforts of home to fall back on when everything was so new. I didn’t have my favorite coffee shop, my friend to get ice cream and drive around with, my mom’s comfort food, or even my own bed. I never realized how much I relied on such simple comforts of home. To make a long story short, these last few months have been challenging but equally as rewarding. It is true what they say, you grow when you step out of your comfort zone. I can’t imagine this experience without the support from MVC and especially my extraordinary community members. I have the utmost gratitude for those near and far whose support is felt day after day.
