There are many things to be said about change. It can be terrifying at the onset, if you let it. It can also be a glorious relief and rebirth, if you let it. It can be a journey of both as you let yourself ride in and out of it until you find balance.
Nature shows us that change is beautiful and graceful. The seasons change. The moon changes. The tides change. Babies grow and change. Day changes into night… so the thing about change can also be to remember that it is always with us – whether it be brewing inside us or swirling in the air around us. We have survived it a thousand times over with each new sunrise.
I write about change today because I am on the onset of change. Change of career, change of lifestyle, change of location, and change of mindset. I am feeling part terrified and part glorious. Terrified of the unknown outcome, and glorious at the adventure of it all.
And, I guess that’s the other thing about change – it keeps you feeling alive. It heightens your senses and emotions in order to go forth on your adventure. It makes you grateful for what you’ve had before and what you will receive and learn because of it.
I guess the goal is to take a tip from nature and go into a change as gracefully as you can, enjoy the feeling of being alive and know that out of change comes growth and beauty.
