Note from Randy: early in the year, I asked Christina Rossini about doing a few guest posts on our blog. I asked her because I knew she had worthwhile insight to share. And, she did! She wrote quite a few, for a number of months. We posted these under the title: “The Millennial Corner” — some terrific posts. You can see them all by clicking here.
She is now saying goodbye to us on this blog. Thanks, Christina. And all the best — go forward in this next chapter on your journey.

“Seasons of Change”
In January of this year, I began writing the Maximized Life blog. It was a welcome & exciting change to form the new habit of writing regularly. As with all change, it was uncomfortable at first to get into the new routine (in this case, near-weekly content creation). I welcomed the challenge; after all, challenge is another word for opportunity, and it’s only in challenge that we grow–that we get better.
When we feel an inner resistance, it’s a sign that a change must be made in our lives. We either must change our mindset or change our environment. The resistance will persist until we yield to it and change something.
Seasons and change go hand-in-hand, since seasons begin and end, and sometimes repeat.
Relationships, jobs, feelings, habits, interests, environment.
Blogging has been a great season of expression, stretching, introspection, and connecting dots.
As this season wanes, other seasons wax: rising to a leadership & mentor role at work, planning THREE international group trips in 2018, chairing a school board, and my husband & I buying our first home this month.
One of my close friends dubs every year at her birthday the “year of X“, and X is always something new that she’s adopting in her life that year. So, cheers to change. When we put on something different, we welcome the opportunity to become the best-version-of-ourselves. And isn’t this what life is all about?
