Thanks for dropping by. We all know change is constant in life. While change can be extremely uncomfortable; especially, when it is unexpected or not orchestrated by us; we also know that stagnation is much worse. At least with change we have the opportunity to grow, learn, and evolve in some way.
I highly believe that life is for living (participating), loving (connecting), learning (growing and evolving), and sharing (getting and giving feedback, and taking in and imparting what we've learned). And change is constantly occurring as we do these things.
Constant change is inevitable as evidenced by improvements in technology (although I still have a Samsung III); marriages and divorces; births and deaths; graduations; companies downsizing or growing; businesses opening or closing; natural disasters or land development; and...well, you get the idea.
Fortunately, change provides opportunities to get better at living, loving, learning, sharing.
Already your life has changed in many ways, and it will continue to change until you take your last breath. Therefore, it is wise to be patient with yourself as you find ways to cope while attending this humongous and dynamic school called life.
Below Are Ways To Cope With Change (be sure to click on the links for more information):
1) Be appreciative. If the change is something you wanted, give thanks, express gratitude, and enjoy it. If the change is uncomfortable, be appreciative about the fact that change is temporary.
2) Practice patience. As stated above, change is temporary. Still, it is easy to feel frantic and uncomfortable about it. When you choose, or have been forced, to make a change, be patient with getting through the newness of the situation. Think about a time in your life when you got a new job, or moved to another state or a different neighborhood. Eventually you went from making a change to having changed. Each change comes with a before, during, and after. But in each phase all you have is the present moment so make an effort to be patient with the process. https://www.amazon.com/Patience-Acquire-This-Powerful-Virtue-ebook/dp/B01EMOALK8/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8
3) Choose faith over fear. Have faith in your ability to find solutions to changes that are challenging. Look for ways to change a bad situation, relationship, job situation, or relationship into a more positive one. Fear paralyzes us from finding solutions or being able to calm our nerves. I don't know anyone who doesn't feel fear from time to time, but we must make the effort to replace thoughts of fear, which paralyzes us from finding solutions, with thoughts of faith that we can cope and will get through whatever challenging change we are faced with.
