Changing for better?

"Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change" ~Jim Rohn~.

I am the kind of person that when I'm comfortable with my current situation, I hope I stay like that as long as possible. Because I'm afraid of changing. I fear that I will regret for changing. Yes, in a way, I guess I don't like to take risks. However, my life recently has been all about getting use to 'changing'. Moving into a new place, looking for a new job, perhaps waiting for a new relationship and...moving into a new Church's ward.

Maybe some people won't think that moving to a new ward is that big of deal, but to me it is. When I first came to Australia, I know nobody. Members from Morialta Ward are like my family. I see them almost every Sunday for the past 4 years. I can really say that I grow up with them all these years I'm in Adelaide. Leaving the ward is like living my second home. When the Bishop told me that I need to attend Church service in Firle Ward (since my house was in Firle ward's boundary) next week, few options popped into my mind. First, I do as what I have been told. Second, I ignored what I've been told and continue attending my current ward (Morialta Ward). Third, I move back into Morialta Ward's boundary then I can stay in ward. Lastly, become less active. Well of course, knowing me, I choose my first (also the only) option - into Firle Ward. I suppose I'll have to challenge the quote from Jim Rohn to see if life really does gets better by CHANGE.

Roses and Card from the Primary Presidency and kids that I taught as I served as Primary Sunday School teacher (best calling ever!!!)

They help me realised how precious little kids are^^
