A brand new year is here. Wherever we are, once more we go into a new year, an opportunity for a new beginning to reflect and decide on what we really want out of life this year, a time of change. Are you ready to make this one of the best years of your life? Are you ready to make changes?
Many, many years ago, a wise and wonderful man told me "Hazel, All change is stressful, even positive change". This was a new concept to me. Until then I had always assumed that change had to be negative for it to be stressful, but that one sentence has stayed with me. I have come to realize that any kind of change can be stressful, but it is necessary if we are to move forward in life. Without change there cannot be progress. To the degree that it is stressful, in many ways, depends on how we deal with change, how we welcome change, accept change, embrace change.
Some change we create and invite, sometimes it comes into our life unexpectedly and uninvited due to external circumstances. We may not always be able to control the events in our life, or other people's actions, but we can control the way we let them affect us. If you find yourself feeling any resistance to change, maybe it's time to create a new way of thinking, acting and being.
Make it the 2019 that you want to live!
