Change will change you.


Why do people fight change so hard? Why do they like things to remain as they are, as they always have been. What is the problem?

Change can create stress and fear. Things will no longer be the same and same is where people are comfortable. It's a fear of the unknown. Everyone feels safer when things are familiar.

So let's consider this. Why no just leave things as they are, don't change anything. Stand straight, tall and firm in your resolve. Keep things the same at all costs. But ask yourself ... are all your needs fulfilled, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually? Are you satisfied with your life? Are you living the dream? If everything is copacetic, then leave things alone, and good luck! 

Don't be afraid of change, you might lose something good, but you'll gain something better.

If you feel that your world needs to be altered a bit, change will be involved. You can set yourself on the road to change, by doing something different, going on a trip to a new location, just change it up. Life also has a way of changing things for you. It is inevitable. It's how you handle the changes in life that makes it stressful ... or not.

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new." Socrates

Whenever you go through change, whether you go kicking and screaming all the way, or accepting and calm; you will notice a shift. Not only will things be different, so will you.
"Be the change you want to see in the world" Mahatma Gandhi
