Change can come in many forms in our lives. It might come forcefully like a tsunami, or creep along quietly like a tiny little snail. It might come in the form of a devastating tragedy, a difficult choice, a broken relationship, or even a new job opportunity.
Even though change is difficult, many times it can also be enlightening and for the best. Accomplishing anything great in life requires significant changes that push us beyond our little safe place. Changes can make our comfort zone feel like it's being poked by a big, sharp stick. Change can make us feel uncomfortable, can flood us with anxiety. But, change can also make us feel lighter, and whole again.
Many times, the only way to improve our lives is to force ourselves to undergo a difficult change. That might mean breaking up with someone; familiar, but stale, leaving a mediocre, but stable job, moving away from a nice, but unexciting location, or anything else that’s holding us back from accomplishing our dreams and allowing us to become the best possible version of ourselves.
Of course, dealing with uninvited change in our lives is often difficult and painful and most of us are unprepared for that type of situation. But, just know, whatever change you’re dealing with, how you choose to cope with that change will have a huge impact on your future.
Change can be good. Change can be difficult but beautiful.
And remember—if there were no changes, there would be no butterflies! 🦋
