Day 137

Change. Some of us thrive on it. Some of us resist it. Some of us resent it. Some of us look to hold on to the known. Change and the unknown is a scary and sometimes stressful. In the end though, change is an important part of growing and developing as a person. 

The stronger that you resist change, the harder it is to lead a happy and fulfilling life. It also will leave you living in the past and not be on the forefront of life - in whatever capacity. I was told earlier this year by an astrologer that this year would be the 'survival of the fittest' where those that could not adapt to the changing world would be left behind. Has this happened? Are you living in the past resisting the changes that are occurring around you? 

Change does happen - quite often on a daily basis. We change what we wear, eat, do etc. On a bigger scale we may move, change jobs, get married or have a life changing experience such as a car accident or being diagnosed with a disease. Sometimes change occurs without us even realising it, because it doesn't directly affect us. I was driving along a road (which I drive frequently to / from work) that there has been roadworks for months. When suddenly I realise they have made the lane wider and I have been driving on the new piece of the road. Change had happened, but because it didn't directly affect me I didn't notice or 'resist' it until it had already happened. 

This analogy is good to apply to life. Often we will be resisting something (sometimes without even realising it) where we would be better off to just let it run it's course and reflect after it has happened. We generally put a lot of pressure on ourselves to make a decision about change - but really it is already happening or has already happened, all we need to do is allow it. 

Only we can allow something changing to impact negatively on our lives. For after all change will happen REGULARLY, as soon as we accept that, we will be able to continue to move forward. Whether that be in the same capacity - or CHANGE the way we continue. Don't give away your power. Choose to accept that it will happen. 

…Until Tomorrow xox
