AUTUMN – A season of change and discarding the old to make way for the new…
We can be sure that through our lives, we will face many changes which both directly and indirectly affect us. Change really is Life… things never stay the same.
Sometimes when it seems that our lives are in turmoil as a result of changes that have occurred often beyond our control, we feel that the changes are “The worst thing that could happen!”. What I’ve realised through such experiences is that often “The Worst Thing” turns out to be “The Best Thing”.
Take a peep at my previous post on this subject: https://brilliancewithin.com/2016/07/07/change-do-you-go-with-the-flow-or-swim-against-the-tide/
When you’re going through the experience of a significant and difficult change in your life, it may not feel good, but often when you look back on what happened, maybe a year or so later, you realise that it happened for a reason.
We often get rooted in what we know and our roots can hold us fixed firmly in a place that isn’t necessarily the best place to be. But – we stay there because we fear the unknown and even if something doesn’t ‘feel good’, we stick with it as we are ‘rooted’ in that place.
Change is needed to set our lives moving in a new direction and sometimes it is necessary to chop the old roots away and send out new roots that move us forward. The changes that we often dread or fear the most often turn out to be the changes that moved our lives in a much better direction.
I think one of the greatest lessons I’ve started to learn is that when I feel bad/uncomfortable/disconcerted by what is happening in my life, I now have the knowledge to recognise that this is the time to really take a deeper look and review what’s going on and why I feel this way and then have the ‘faith’ that actually it really is happening for a reason and it’s an opportunity to reflect and make changes that will enhance my life!
How do you feel about change? I’d love to know – please leave me a comment.. Thanks!
