“One has to take a somewhat bold and dangerous line with this existence: especially as, whatever happens, we are bound to lose it.”

Change often happens unexpectedly. Sometimes people seek for a change. Most of times life itself surprises you.

If there is no obvious or immediate impact, I tend to take the change in a positive way — anyway I cannot undo it, so why not think of the bright side of it?

I like new challenge once a while. — If anyone reads up to here and think this is going to be a blog full of positive energy then you are wrong. ;) I have never been a person who can write something like Chicken Soup for the Soul. Back to the topic of change, while I am always looking for new challenge, I feel perfectly fine just sitting still. It is the feeling of settling and comfort that worries me. What if I have been too comfortable, and not prepared for any unexpected change?

The insecurity keeps me on my toes all the time. I wonder if this is a natural instinct, or a result from the dynamics of modern society. Am I naturally a person who is uneasy to a routine life? Or I am being unconsciously forced to always looking for some sort of challenge, in this way I can make sure that I am adapting to the evolving world? Deep in my heart there is a thought — “change may not always be good, but no change is definitely bad.”

It could be totally wrong. But here I am.
