Adapting to Change
I recently participated in a discussion regarding change. The question centered around how we handle and adapt to change. What comes to mind for you when you think about this questions? How do you handle change?
I know that change is the only constant in life, but knowing this doesn’t necessarily make it easier to deal with on any given day. I also know that I’m better at handling change now than I was years ago. Is this because I’m older or wiser? Hmm…I’m not sure. Wink, wink!
Anyway, I think my way of handling and adapting to change has improved over the years. This is because I’ve included other people in the process. I no longer try to take care of everything myself. I ask for help. I have some friends I can talk to who will lovingly listen without trying to tell me what to do. They may make a suggestion every now and then and I welcome that with open arms.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that change does not have to be a terrible experience. I can ask myself to consider new possibilities. I can remind myself that there are always blessings (sometimes hidden at first) that come with change. Most of all, I can handle and adapt to change faster and easier when I release the need to resist it. This is the key for me and sometimes I need a reminder or two before I’m willing to let go.
Today I welcome change. Today I move forward with confidence. I affirm I have all the strength, courage, and enthusiasm I need to accomplish anything that comes my way. Knowing this fills me with gratitude. Here I go!
Blessings to all!
In Love and Light,
