Welcome, my fellow travelers on this journey called life to the Embracing Change Blog. My name is Angel Lewis, and I am your host, primary writer, and editor. Dull isn't a word that I can use to describe my adult life. There are so many interesting and fun chapters that I usually say that I've been on an adventure. This journey hasn't been on a straight path. Like you, life has thrown me some major curves. While working through those challenges, I realized that too often; we feel alone during our transformation. How do we discuss these things without feeling like we're using the other person as a 'dumping ground'? Helping others feel supported by a community of fellow travelers on the path that life presents brought me to start this blog. In the pages of Embracing Change, you will find discussions of why it's important to make and embrace change using the lenses of gratitude, meditation, affirmations, journaling, happiness, and kindness.
Does life seem dull? Are you caught up in waves of restlessness where you feel like you want to be doing something, anything different than what you’re doing right now? If only you could put your finger on exactly what this could be! Do you quickly get stuck in jealousy when you see someone else succeed, but find yourself procrastinating when it comes time for doing something yourself?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, then it’s like time for a change.
Life without change is stagnant. Everything feels stale, and going about your daily routine feels like a life sentence without the benefit of time off for good behavior. Yet the answer, so very simple, seems the hardest thing in the world to do. We make excuses not to alter the status quo and tell ourselves we’re not ready and find excuses to put change off.
I am an entrepreneur and author who grew up in Guilford County, North Carolina. My passion for writing was awakened while attending Guilford College in the city of Greensboro, NC. I believe you must bring your complete self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world; your personality, your sense of humor, and your heart.
My debut book, written in 2021, My Self-Care Plan: 12 Monthly Strategies That Will Transform Your Life, inspires readers to make self-care a priority in the coming year so that they can live their best life possible. It is available through B&N and other retailers. In the spring of 2022, I published Ready. Set. Fly! a children’s book that encourages self-belief and perseverance. Digital and print versions are available through Amazon. Print versions can also be purchased on the Ready. Set. Fly! website.
I have been lucky enough to live in California, Missouri, and Florida. I live in Virginia Beach with one of my daughters, granddaughter and our two dogs. I spend my free time gardening, reading, gaming, as well as spending lots of time with friends and family.
I invite you to settle into your favorite reading spot, get comfy, and journey with me in exploring change and all the emotions that are along for the ride!
