A friend of mine takes a step in a new direction today. It has been a much needed and anticipated change. It also reminded me of how inevitable change is in our lives.
So many of us are frightened by change, but without it there is no growth. Sometimes it is taken out of our hands and yes, that can be scary, it is not within your control.
If you are aware that you need to make changes, start small. The biggest change is your mindset. You need to decide that this change is for the better, once you accept that, you can start to work toward implementing small, baby step changes. If you are thrown into a sudden, life changing change, stop and breathe. These events can be caused by a loss of job, divorce, illness even the loss of a loved one.
The initial reaction to changes like these is panic. Panic will get you absolutely nowhere. You need time……time to let it sink in, to learn to accept what has happened. You will need a clear head to move forward and make the changes that are necessary to do that.
Just know that no matter what instigates it or how big or small it is, every little change you make towards the person and life you want has got to be a good start. Keep heading in that right direction ……one step at a time, one foot n front of the other.
