Ch-Ch-Choose to Change!

Change, future, opportunity, quotes, results, uncertainty

I love quotes. Just flipping through my book, FibroWHYalgia (http://www.RebuildingWellness.com/) confirms that in every chapter.

Here’s one I saw yesterday: “It is not what happens that determines the major part of your future. What happens, happens to us all. It is what you do about what happens that counts.” – Jim Rohn.

Varieties of this quote exist from many past and present sources — from ancient philosopher Epictetus to current speaker and clergyman, Chuck Swindoll. The point is, we all get to CHOOSE what we do with the information and experiences we’re given. The act of choosing is one of the main themes in my book.

I recall a women’s retreat I attended many years ago that had us write down the scariest times of our lives. We each listed tragedies such as illnesses, moves, job losses, divorce, etc. Then the speaker asked us to list the changes or shifts in our lives that stemmed from those “tragedies.”

We were all surprised to note that many, in fact a majority, of those changes provided positive results. Time and again, the changes we did not foresee (and would never have chosen) provided much-needed guidance toward a happier and healthier future.

Positive future change comes from an uncertain present.

We often can’t see the path leading to change until we’re pressed breathlessly up against the fork in the road. Are there stresses, anxieties, or concerns over your present situation? Consider it an opportunity to widen your perspective. Comfort yourself with the knowledge that good does come from change (even though you may not be able to see it now). Have you also found this to be true?

Change is good. Choosing to see it as a positive part of everyday life, may be your first step toward a healthier future!
