Someone once said that there are only two things you can count on: death and taxes. Well, I am here to tell you that there is one thing grossly missing from this list – change. The last two years have more than proven to me that death and taxes happen far less than change.
As one of those individuals who loves a good checklist, and never lets the first week of January end before my goals are written, change didn’t come smoothly. Changes in our lives can be good but even good can be stressful.
Don’t get me wrong, I am all about personal growth and improving ourselves. But sometimes external forces bring us situations that cause change in our path, attitude or situation – all of which can be embraced and really used as a life learning opportunity. Easier said than done, but let me encourage you to take a look at where you are in life and consider what the last five years have brought.
Did life happen and did you struggle through? Having done this little exercise, I can tell you that I made some mistakes, and a lot of things changed in my world that weren’t on any list or in any of my goals. I’ve learned more about myself and what I want in this world and my purpose in this world.
What better way to embrace change than to take advantage of the opportunity to check ourselves and ride the wave of change. Fighting it may get you caught in the undertow. If that happens, just stand up, the water may not be that deep.
Think about it.
All the best,
