Change is hard. Change takes a long time. In the moment, change can wear you down like you wouldn’t believe.
I find myself having one of those weeks where I am aware of these two things:
- The changes I am going through at the library are good changes and in the long run they will make the library a stronger place for the community.
- The changes I am going through at the library are wearing me down mentally in the moment.
I am faced with two possible future paths:
- I can continue to believe in the changes I am going through at the library and see the project to its end.
- I can give up on the change that I am going through at the library, fall into depression, and not accomplish any goals that would ultimately benefit the community.
The path that I want to take is #1, of course, but it seems so easy to just give up. I think this is one thing that all human beings go through. It is so easy to give up and not make a difference. I don’t want to be one of those people. I want to leave this earth someday knowing that I helped as many people out in my own little way as I could.
Yes Justin. But you can do it.
