Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

Change
[cheynj]
verb (used with object), changed, changing.
1.
to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone: "to change one's name; to change one's opinion;
to change the course of history."
Change can be good or bad. People go through traumatic events that push them into a huge, sudden change, or it happens in tiny increments, day by day. Sometimes it's a method of survival. Other times it's growth through subtle life changes. Sometimes, though, they just decide to show their true colours.
Whatever the cause of change within a person, it can sometimes get difficult for those around them. Good changes, like becoming motivated or working harder, can be cause for celebration for family and friends. However when a person changes in negative ways, even slightly, it can be stressful for others around them and can sometimes push people away.
Of course sometimes positive changes can push people away as well. Someone who had once been a push over suddenly standing up for themselves can result in pushing away people they'd once thought were friends. While that can be a great thing for the former doormat, when it results in the loss of friendships built over years, through tough times for the ex doormat, it is also a sad time. Years of good times ended simply because people can't stand someone bettering themselves.
Over time, you move on. But occasionally you remember those good times and smile, fond memories like a warm hug, and you might miss the people they used to be before you woke up to what you wanted. But always remember that you're better on your own feet, and those memories are just that; memories. There's no going back, no matter how much you may sometimes think how awesome it would be to relive those days of naivety and youth, and perhaps it's best. Life moves forward, not backwards.
So remember those days fondly and with a warm smile, but don't linger on them. Keep your focus on the future and all the new memories you will create.
Phoenix Johnson is an Australian author who has always had the passion for the written word. She had her nose in at least one book ever since she could read and would even scrutinize the back of the cereal box every morning at breakfast. It was only natural she take up writing.
After reviewing a few delicious titles for Naughty Nights Press as she wrote her first title, The Wolf in the Neighborhood, Phoenix was of one mind to submit it to NNP, and she hasn't looked back. The Return of Their Master and Once Bitten Twice Shy now join her first title for sale, and all three books are receiving great reviews. Phoenix feels that being invited to write for the NNP blog is a great honour, and loves being part of the team!

You can get in touch with Phoenix on FacebookTwitterInstagramPinterestTumblr or view her website here, or buy her books direct from Naughty Nights Press, or other good ebook distributors.

  1. Great post, Phoenix. One that really hits home right now, but in the end it's a good thing, I suppose. Thank you for reminding me of this. <3

    1. Always happy to help how I can ;) I'm surprised how often I have random inspired moments that someone I know needs to hear. I'm a channel, and I'm happy to be so! <3
