Time for Your Game Changer? Turn on the S.W.I.T.C.H!

What's Your Game Changer, asks Carla O'Reilly

Is it time for your Game Changer? After hitting 40, I finally became comfortable in my own skin and it has been an eye-opening, wonderful, freeing experience!

I could care less what people think and realized they were never thinking about me at all. I say what I feel, and what I will waste energy on is getting smaller and smaller. I am grateful for my friends who were with me for a reason, a season, for a lesson, and very few for a lifetime.  Each friend has a special place in my heart and I admire different qualities from each of them.

2019 was a defining year and a game-changer.  I ended an eight-year-long relationship, and if you want to talk about death and grief, I could write a book solely on that.  My tears could have filled an ocean but I put on a smile and released T.U.R.N. O.N. T.H.E. S.W.I.T.C.H!

How poetic and fitting; I was going to have to walk the talk. 

God said to me, “It’s time to see what you’re made of.”

My friend got me a sign that said “Change is Good.” 

I had to change; I had to grow; I had to sit down and decide what I really wanted.

I made a list. I was not playing around anymore. I want the fairy-tale Prince Charming — someone who makes me a priority. I want someone to help decorate the Christmas tree or at least carry it up the stairs. 

My “Game Changer” was to make me a priority, to not settle and to be messy. I am ready to break all the rules I thought I had to follow and have fun while doing it. 

So I challenge you. Not happy? Maybe it’s time for your Game Changer!
