This is a food truck in Valencia, Spain. My daughter took the photograph while spending a semester there last year. My first thought was, “Whoa, that is one big pan!” Apparently Valencia is where paella was first invented, and you can buy it all over the city. Street vendors look a little different over in Spain.
Change is change. When we try something new (like visiting a foreign country), we should expect to find ourselves in unfamiliar circumstances. Maybe a step we’ve taken will have a ripple effect and we will begin rethinking some long-established behaviors. Perhaps we will go someplace we’ve never been and feel awkward or vulnerable. Often we meet new people, some of whom may challenge our beliefs. The path of change is always a little unpredictable.
Are you trying something new this year? If so, you are likely to go through an adjustment period. You might come face to face with people, places and things you’ve never seen. Embracing, rather than resisting, these surprises will ease your path as you push through to improve your life.
