Where I am, it is autumn. The leaves are changing colour, the trees are letting go, the weather is changing every few minutes. Autumn is showing us change in all its beauty and possibility.
We often think of change as being scary as it means venturing into the unknown or it could involve picking up a long-lost thread apprehensive of what we might find.
But think of something that you decided to change in your life, big or small, recent or long ago. Was it for the better or for the worse? Either way, was it worth it in the end? I would hope to think it was!
If we reframe change as opportunity, exploration, curiosity, a breath of fresh air, out with the old and in with the new, change takes on a much more exciting and positive nature.
If we’re finding ourselves in a situation we’re not happy in, we have three options:
1. Stay and continue to suffer
2. Stay and do something differently to improve the situation
3. Leave and try something new
Where are you finding yourself in a situation that you would like to see a change?
What scenario came up when you thought about a change you’ve experienced in the past?
Share with us in the comments! It would be fascinating to see if there are similarities or a common thread!
And after posting your comment, you may want to hear one of my stories of change, specifically how I considered the above three options when choosing how to move forwards.
