Change is soooo gooood, but only when you are ready to accept it, right? Wrong. It’s a time for change. Honestly, when isn’t it a time for change? It’s inevitable in life, a little bit like death. Saddening but true.
We have a choice. Change can wreck havoc on our lives, or we embrace it, move with the waves, and find our place in the mess. Will we give ourselves excuses to sit in the background, complain about the circumstances, and wish for the past? Or will we dump our attention in the unknown for our growth and benefit?
I have found change to bring an array of emotions, the type of emotions that bring many different levels: happiness, emptiness, loneliness, overwhelming grief, happiness, another level of emptiness, anger, and then peace. These feelings are normal and let our minds adjust to the change, but they shouldn’t overwhelm us. They are good and natural, but will only hinder our personal growth. Life is full of twists and turns and there’s time to grow, but why waste a moment?
Accepting Change When We Can’t Control It.
Move with the tide. If we can’t adjust to our surroundings, we won’t personally grow.
It’s okay to fight the change, but only with solid convictions. If you don’t know why you’re fighting change, then it’s probably not worth the battle.
Find your life line. Who brings you joy and peace? Who calms you down? Don’t go at this alone – find your peach, the person who listens and supports you, but doesn’t get you more agitated.
Not all change appears positive, but there will always be a lesson to learn.
Last, but not least – Love Life! This sounds cliche, but we only get one chance at this. Are we making the most of the time with ourselves, our families, our friends, and the strangers who need our smile and humor. Embrace the change. Love the change. Because Life is Worth Living!
