No, it’s not what you are thinking; it’s C for change. Got you! Change can be good but it doesn’t always feel good. Why? It’s not easy to begin with. It is unsettling and terrifying for most of us, but we have to sometimes. Change is constant in all our lives whether we choose to notice it or not. Learn how to embrace it, it’s the most valuable tool in helping you be enthusiastic about the new you.
Changing shouldn’t be rocket science (pun intended) no matter what kind of transition we are going through. You only attract the things you have energy for, that’s why you ought to have positive beliefs about change, life and yourself. An optimistic attitude is the cornerstone of change. You may not have chosen the change that is taking place in your life but you get to choose your beliefs around it.
With change, something good will always be dragged into your life. All you need to do is hold on, be resilient and persistent. Being alive, we all survived some ‘worst moment’ in our past. There’s a truth in that; you can handle much than you think. We all must know that fear walks hand in hand with change. Ignoring it won’t make it go away. Admit it. Fear, guilt and impatience are there to get your attention and direct you to more positive ones. The faster you accept or choose change, the less the pain and hardship will be. In that change period, surround yourself with people who can help and have an optimistic mindset and create an environment that supports change.
There are practical basics of change by Arianne de Bonvoisin the change guru: that can help you move that can help you move that mountain:
Don’t forget to seed: sleep well, eat well, exercise and drink water. Be healthy during adjustment times. Every little thing feels more overwhelming when you are hungry or tired. Keep moving: coping with change can leave you feeling frustrated, take a walk, jog or skip rope. Exercise is a mood booster and clears your head. Unload weak and negative thoughts: put your anxieties down on paper, helps you come to terms with changes and get through them quicker. Create a ‘wall of change’: put notes and pictures that make you feel excited about change. It could be a photo of someone who inspires you or an empowering quote, verse, or even a word. It’s easier to keep an eye on your goals when they’re literally spread out in front of you.
Don’t bite more than you can chew and I won’t dish out more than you can take. Take action, have a plan and take care of yourself. Change is good. Take it one day at a time, you’ll get there.
