I hope you had a nice relaxing weekend. Each week we have been talking about change. Creating our dream life, pursuing new opportunities, and all that sounds exciting, but sometimes change can be scary. Change can come in many forms throughout our lives.
It might come forcefully like a tidal wave, as we saw in 2020, or creep along incrementally like a glacier. It might come in the form of devastating tragedy, difficult choices, broken relationships, or even new opportunities.
Even though change can be difficult, many times it’s also for the best. Accomplishing anything great in life requires us to make difficult choices that push us beyond our comfort zones. That might mean breaking up and leaving a stale, but comfortable relationship, leaving a mediocre, but stable job, moving away from a nice, but uninspiring – location, or anything else that’s holding you back from accomplishing our dreams.
Of course, change is often difficult and painful. But whatever kind of change you are dealing with, know that you will learn to cope, and that you have a unique opportunity to shape your future.
Something to Think About
Staying put is safe. Moving forward is scary. When your desire to have that change is stronger than your desire to stay in the safe zone, you are ready.
It’s not always necessary to make big changes in your life. Sometimes small changes can make a big difference. Is there a change that you need to make in your life in 2021?
