The world as we created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking. ~ Albert Einstein
Why is it that throughout our life, things happen and then we find our life to be completely different? Sometimes we know change is coming. Other times, boom out of nowhere and with no warning, change is thrust upon us! It seems that people, in general, struggle with change. What if change really is a good thing and not that scary monster that many people believe change to be?
If you are here on Earth, you are constantly changing whether you recognize it or not. You can't be living here and not change. You may be reading this and thinking to yourself, "I have been doing the same job for the last ten years while married to the same person living in the same town. Nothing has changed in my life."
Every day you are changed and shaped into a new version of you. You are not the same person you were even a year ago! Changes can happen through your experiences, the people you interact with, what you read and what you hear on TV.
Stop reading this and take a moment to look back over the past ten years of your life. Look at where you were and where you are now. Look at all areas of your life. Was it difficult to go through change any time during those the years?
As you do this, note what you have accomplished and what you might have done differently. Really notice how much you have changed. Some of you have felt the changes and were aware of what the changes meant for your life. Some of you didn't realize how much you have changed till you looked at it in this moment.
After looking at all of this, is it possible now to understand that as difficult as change can be, it is often a "good" thing? At times when we are in the middle of change, we can't see the rainbow at the end of the change. As you go through change, look for some good in the change. Focus on the "good" part of the change to help you see your rainbow.
As a Life Coach, I have had many people tell me that they can feel change right at their fingertips but they didn't quite know what those changes are. Some people are ready to make changes and don't know what steps to take to change their life. As we develop a plan to help them change, I ask them to consider "What if change is good?" Often that helps them embrace change rather than resist change.
How about you, are you going through change? Ready for change? Would you like to flow through change? If so, perhaps the first step to change is to embrace the idea that . . . change is good!
