Change is the law of life!
Change, it’s inevitable, sometimes it arrives in grand style by intention and other times? It creeps up on us. However way it comes, it shows up anyway because changes will always occur as long as life is.
Change is not always easy, but some of us embrace it while a majority of us resist it until our hands are forced to. We resist change possibly because of the “fear of the unknown”, the “what ifs” or the comfortability of our current situation(s).
I have been in situations that have required change so many times and experience has taught me that resistance only makes the transition a lot harder than it should be. Eckhart Tolle said: “Some changes look negative on the surface, but you will soon realise that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”
Growing up and even till this day, I get the “you have changed” comment or “You look different” time and again and I always jokingly respond with, “I’d hate to stay the same anyway!” In life, the only way we can grow is if we change (evolve) and growth is something we should be constantly thankful for because if you are not growing, it means you are stagnant. Nobody wants that.
What I am trying to say with this piece is that nothing is permanent, situations will always change and hopefully only for the better. “Life belongs to the living, and (s)he who lives must be prepared for changes.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
Always see the good in any form of change that comes your way, embrace it, work with it, through it, around it or over it and you will be pleasantly surprised by its rewards.
Some people will argue that it is easier said than done, that is not far from the truth, but it can be done once you make up your mind to change certain aspects of your life that have not been or is not currently working for you.
Embrace the wind of change when it comes your way. This can only happen if your thoughts are aligned with it though because there is nothing as powerful as a changed mind!
