Change does not wipe away what was. It builds on it.
And when we change, it is often so that what we build looks way too similar to what was. After all, it is easier to fall back on what is known than it is to imagine the unknown.
It is ok, as change is an additive process. It is made of layers on top of each others. Some familiar, some peculiar. While you go, you will realize that change is happening, even when it does not seem so.
That is when you start to appreciate the journey and understand that the destination is mere chance.
