Unless you’re stagnant and still—a mere concrete block in a sea of humans—change is inevitable. Everything changes. Nothing stays the same.
Situations change, for better or worse.
People change, for better or worse. Even people who insist they won’t change do, in fact, change. Even those we think will never change will, in fact, change. For better or for worse.
Every living thing is in motion, even when it’s trying not to be.
If you’re in a happy place in your life, it will change. Like a leaf floating along a trickling brook or a swift river, you will move along to the next thing. Your situation will change or your thoughts about it will change, and because of this certainty, you will change.
Your current happiness may next morph into even greater happiness . . . or it may morph into neutrality . . . and yes, it may even morph into sadness, frustration, anger, or a plethora of other unwanted, uncomfortable emotional states.
Likewise, if you’re in a sad or difficult place, it too will change. With your life ever morphing into the “next” thing, whatever it may be, you can and should expect change of some sort.
Yes, if you’re already facing difficulties, your situation or emotional state could get worse. There’s always that possibility. BUT things could also become more neutral, providing welcome relief. At best, you could be on the cusp of better times to come. Happiness is just as likely at the next bend as any other possibility.
So, if you’re “in it” right now, my friend, swimming neck high in mud, hang in there. BELIEVE that change is coming. Even if you’ve gotten to where your only goal today is to curl up in a ball in a dark room and simply make it through this day, change will still happen even as you withdraw and lick your wounds.
Even as you barely make it through today, when you step out of the darkness tomorrow, the whole world will have remained in motion . . . your circumstances may have already changed without you even knowing it, without you doing anything at all.
To all of you, my friends, wherever you are in your lives . . .
Believe in the POWER of change.
EMBRACE the opportunities AND CHALLENGES that come with change.
For change may be your best ally in an often challenging world.
And PLE-E-E-EASE, when in doubt, always remember:
Even within this sometimes crazy, disheartening physical world we live in,
you are a perfect spiritual being.
YOU’RE NOT ALONE
YOU ARE LOVED!
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION . . . Say it with me! . . .
“I BELIEVE in the POWER of change. I’m not afraid of change. Even if change brings something I’m hesitant to face, I will embrace it, for it is likely to help—even FORCE—me to grow in a way that’s necessary for my emotional development. Change may be exactly what I need. If change brings challenge, I’ll embrace that challenge and will look forward to the improvements it’ll ultimately bring to my goal of personal peace and emotional well-being.”
QUOTABLE “TAKE-AWAY” . . .
“If there’s anything I can count on in life, CHANGE is perhaps the most useful and powerful.”
