The inspiration behind this toon was the fact that I was contemplating taking on something completely new that would have changed my life drastically. However, the human tendency to fear change and cling on to familiar ground crept in to my mind. As we grow, we become more and more resistant to changes. So, after procrastinating the decision for as long as I could, I created this toon essentially to clear my own confused state of mind.
Now when I look back, I can happily say that it helped me a great deal. I confidently took the plunge and took the decision I was holding back for so long. Not only that, I also shed all the fears that were previously haunting me and faced the many new subsequent changes, that followed my decision.
"it's time for a change
And deep down you know it too
Embracing the unknown may seem strange
But that's what really best for you"
Yes, I knew it was 'time for a change' but I had been avoiding the decision for very long because it fearing the unknown. Although it did seem 'strange' for quite a while initially, it did turn out to be the 'best' for me in the long run.
To this day, the very prospect of a change (however big or small) still continues to worry me. But, over time I've come to terms with the fact that change really is the most inevitable fact of life. Also that most changes are healthy and bring about positive effects on our lives.
There is nothing constant in life, except change.
