PLANTING SEEDS OF CHANGE
What matters most is how we view change. That regulates the results we see from what the seeds of change have to offer. Do you view change with hesitation, fear, or maybe anxiety? Or is change an exciting, anticipatory event for you? Of course it matters greatly what changes are occurring.
Yesterday was a day with wildly swinging feelings for me. I had an exciting event full of opportunity to share what I love to do best – reach and teach. I also had an event with life-altering news. C-H-A-N-G-E.
All I know is that I’m the only one who gets to choose where I’ll plant these seeds of change. Anticipating change with fear fertilizes the seed to germinate with angst, unrest, and worry. I’d rather do my best to stay in the present and take each opportunity for change as it comes.
My past experience provides me with a rich bounty of resources. I’ve observed that sometimes the greatest changes in my life have provided me with the greatest opportunities for personal growth and success. For this moment, all I can say is that I’m open to that.
I’m taking the following quote to heart today – what about you?
“If we don’t change, we don’t grow.
If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.” – Gail Sheehy
