As human beings on this planet, we are all born into a system of change: time passes beneath our lives whether we choose it to, or not. We are not given the option to remain unaffected by events throughout our day: we wake up, we get hungry, we eat, we move from one place to the next, we process countless thoughts throughout the day, we act through countless actions and activities, and eventually we get tired and we sleep. It is an integral cycle and process in our lives that never ends. So, it is little wonder that we can become very frustrated, anxious, unsettled or unhappy if we don’t make an effort to navigate and direct this naturally occurring process for our good and the good of others.
Make a note of how you feel when you think of change. How does the word make you feel? Where do you feel it in your body? Do you find change comfortable? If not, try to pinpoint why not? What would have to shift in your thinking for you to feel like change is your friend?
Too often people fight change because they fear the unknown. Change is a friend and ally. It is very important to realize this and become comfortable with it. Become the cause of change or at least allow yourself to be at the effect of change for the time being. The important concept here is to understand and embrace that change is necessary for shifts to take place in your life.
