Living with Change

If there is one thing we can all depend on in our lifetime, it’s living with change. Change is a constant. Some of us adjust to change easily, even enjoy it, but some of us react with anger, fear, or resentment.

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Wayne Dyer


Welcome or not, change can be stressful.

It’s our relationship with change that makes the difference in how we face it. Do you view it with anticipation or dread? Maybe a little of both, depending on what’s changing. A new job, a move to a new house or city, getting married, a new baby, all can be exciting and happy events, and they can bring on stress.

What can we control?

There are things that change without our approval, planning or expectation…our relationships, death of a loved one, loss of a job, an illness or injury…events we seem to have no control over. But there is something that we can control and that’s how we react to change. 

Do we have something to say about it?

Even though events may seem to unfold without our participation, our hidden attitudes, ideas, and beliefs play a part in the environment we create around us. That doesn’t mean we are at fault or are like leaves floating on a never ending stream taking us wherever it happens to go. We can get off the roller coaster, and even enjoy living with change. We are definitely participants and have a say in the direction we travel, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Your mind is powerful!

We can influence the outcome.

We can influence things on the inside of us and the outside of us. We can’t change other people, but we may be able to influence them. We can also influence the way our lives unfold by what we think, say and do. Our beliefs, words, and actions have consequences and outcomes.

Come from your highest self.

When you think, speak, and act from your highest self, you are coming from a place that serves you and others. The quality of your thought (your attitudes, ideas, and beliefs) determines the quality of your words, the quality of your actions, and the quality of the outcomes.

Surprise, surprise!

Living with change can be challenging, but you have choice in your reactions. There are times when life unfolds in surprising ways, different than you anticipate, but you can move through the changes by adjusting your thoughts, words, and actions to be in alignment with your highest good.

What direction are you going?

Focused thought is powerful and has an impact on your experience. You have control over what you think, say, and do and, as a result, can influence the direction your life takes. When you make decisions and choices from your highest self, the Universe lines up to support you.

Letting go

A sense of freedom comes with making decision and choices from your highest self. When you let go of attachment to outcome, it feels different, and is different, than making decisions from the ego. Holding to a certain outcome may limit your options. Releasing attachment to outcome opens us up to opportunities and possibilities you weren’t aware of before.

What can you do?

If you have something in your life that feels out of control, give yourself permission to let it go.

  • How will it serve you to release it?
  • What steps can you take that are nourishing to you and others?
  • What words can you speak that will influence a positive change and a higher outcome?
  • What are your core values that drive your decisions?
  • Are your core values in alignment with your highest self?
  • Take some time to write your answers.

Right here, right now

Living with change in a positive way means accepting that you are just where you need to be. There is no better place to start than right where you are. What changes do you want that are in alignment with your highest self, with your core values? Let go of resistance, open up to change, and turn it over to Spirit to handle the details.
