“You can keep the change,” I told the waitress as I scooted out of the booth. I smiled as I caught the little play on words. Yes, you can keep the change. All of it. The transitions, the moving, the packing, the goodbyes, every bit of change. We’ve had enough, thank you very much.
But there is something about change that is invigorating. Fresh starts, new years, untethered beginnings. Change stretches us, grows us, and moves us into the next season. We love it. We hate it. We live in the middle of it.
This week is the beginning of our annual three week series on Change, Return, and Remain. So whether you are ready to retire with your gold medal earned in a marathon of transitions, or you are chomping at the bit for someone to fire the starting gun for the next race, join our community’s discussion on change this week.
Join the discussion this week in the comments, on Instagram using #VelvetAshesChange, and then at The Grove beginning Thursday 6pm EST. Bring your blog posts to link up.
Also, we have two personally timed series to support you as you are Leaving Home or Returning Home. Learn more here about these transition guides to help you navigate the coming change. And for a limited time, you can sign up for free!
