The first step is always hard. Whether it’s a new venture, a new relationship or making small changes. Change is a challenge for so many of us, myself included. I fought change for years for fear that decisions that I had made were wrong or were in some way a reflection of failing.
For about eight years, each year I experienced the death of a family member who I was close to and the process of constantly being in grief was exhausting. But light appeared in 2011 with the birth of my eldest nephew. This new birth was a welcome change. I now realize that not all change is bad. The changes that we see as negative tend to be the ones that don’t follow the course we had planned; the ones that seem to be thrust upon us, that give us no opportunity to make a choice about.
What are you unhappy about in your life now? Do you feel like you can do something different and change your reality? Is there a small change you can make so that you feel more in charge, which could lead you to feel more empowered? When we feel more empowered, changes are welcome. Something seemingly small can lead to bigger changes. Is there something small that you can change?
