”Never too old, never too bad, never too late, never too sick to start from scratch once again.”
It happens every day, every moment, everywhere. To live fully we need to embrace change, even when change arrives with fear and uncertainty. Change can be scary and difficult at times, but nonetheless the fact of change is real, and very present.
Changes are never far from our lives, whether it is breaking up with an ex, moving to different area to live, the death of a relative, the loss of a job. Change is not easy but then again, it often provides an opportunity to grow in life and to test your resolve.
Ask yourself a very useful question “What’s the worse that could happen?” This will force you to look a the worst case scenario then work back from there. It is forcing yourself to look at what could go wrong and finding strategies to do your best to prevent this.
Empowerment is essential for coping with change in a good way. The reality of the change will not go away but by understanding that you can – and will – find a way through relying on both your own resourcefulness and the help of those who care about you, you will be able to move with the change without breaking.
Restating, refinding or finally finding your purpose in life can be a very powerful way of putting change into context in your life. Initially you may feel resistance to the idea that your sense of purpose in life is either missing or skewed, but change can actually awaken the quest for re-examining what truly matters to you. Allow this to be an opportunity to renew or reroute your purpose in life.
Remember, changes helps you grow. Change gets you out of your comfort zones and opens up new doors for you. Change is good.
