Change or transition in life is inevitable. Often time it is a good change, but can bring up uncertainty around the circumstances of change.
What humans fear most is the unknown. Why is that? We want to feel in control of our lives, but really that is an illusion too. We actually never know when change may occur. Change can bring sadness because we did not expect the change or want the new life situation that a divorce or death of a loved one can bring. But it’s only change! We adapt and flow and move on.
The biggest help we can give ourself is resiliency. The ability to adjust and adapt to new situations is most desirable. Moving through the emotions brought about by change is also a healthy response. And sometimes we just want support. We want a good friend or loved one to just listen to us as we talk our way through change.
With change comes wisdom. We can say, “I’m never going to do that again” or “next time I’ll know how to cope with the changes”. When life throws us a big or little change, breathing deeply helps. Then we can come to know ourself a little more. We can say, “Wow, I got through this and I am still myself or even better”. Look back on your life and list some of the changes you have gone through. Be amazed at how well you managed it. It is important to give yourself credit for moving on and creating a better and healthier life. When one door closes, another one opens.
It you want more help with a transition, coaching can be a great resource. Coaches are trained to ask the tough questions of you. Heal Your Life coaching will encourage you to take the difficult steps by first loving yourself unconditionally. I am available for coaching.
The Next Big Step is a seminar for you to consider for support and self care while taking the next steps in your life. Join me at this July seminar to learn how to make the changes with ease and love.
