Change Happens

We are all experiencing change at an accelerated rate. And no matter how we evaluate these changes: good-bad, right-wrong, fun-not so fun, we all know that change is inevitable. Change happens.

Sometimes we don’t like the change that is happening. This is one of those life truths … that no matter how much we would like something to go on just like it is now, forever, it just isn’t going to happen. That’s why it is important to savor and appreciate the people and circumstances that we enjoy while they are in our life. That’s also why it’s important to learn to accept change when it comes, as resisting change does not benefit us in any way.

Let’s examine how we approach change in our life. Do we dread it, resist it, lean into it or just wait for it to roll over us? Are we an agent for change in our workplace? Are we an agent for change in our home? Do we support others in their changes? How do we react/respond to change when it comes our way?

How we engage change, which is the only constant in the universe, determines our overall happiness. It doesn’t matter if it is in our business or personal world; how we perceive and interact with life’s shifts critically influences our life.

Even planned changes tend to cause emotional and psychological impacts that we must deal with. When we invest our time, energy, and expertise into our work, there will eventually be a result which will cause a change. We will be promoted or transferred to a different department, get a new boss or co-worker, our company will grow or change direction. Or we will decide we want to pursue a new challenge or environment. As a successful professional, that change is a sign of success.

There are the small, day-to-day changes and then there are the big ones. Both types can cause an inner tizzy of emotions and perceptions. Our ability to release resistance to what is, whether large or small, absolutely reduces the stress on our mind, our body and our spirit … and we grow.

Everyone experiences change, but not everyone is conscious enough to understand that we have control over how we respond to it. Our reaction to change, no matter how big or how small the change, is always our choice. And our choice of how we respond directly impacts our overall happiness. That’s a pretty big deal. Choose wisely! Choose from the heart!
