Saturday DO

DO: embrace change.

One of the life lessons that comes with age, is that life is not always the same – there are many phases, and change is a continual force that will take hold of your life as it progresses. Before the change comes, it’s typical to be in a state of limbo. You’re figuring out what to do next, and this can be unsettling for the psyche.

It’s the unknown of change that humans fear. Although I’ve experienced it too, this fear continues to puzzle me. Every time I’ve gone through a big change, I’ve found myself in a new chapter with new enchantments. An entirely different moment, no better or worse than what came before. You gain new perspectives, and learn things that you would never have gotten the chance to learn had you stayed put in life. So why are we scared of this?

I’ve come to the conclusion that it is entirely mental.

It’s time to adapt – to face our fears, and learn that change is normal and healthy. To become wise we must gather life experiences through the passage of many phases. So next time you find yourself in that state of limbo, and it’s scaring the crap out of you, don’t let your fears get out of line. Know that it means you have once again come to that point where you can grow from change, and look forward to the surprises that lay ahead – you never know what you’re about to learn.

Every Saturday, I always find that the “Do” is related to me in some way, but today more than ever. Change is ahead for me, and I’m going to have to embrace it, and I know that I’ll be gaining a lot more than what I’ve lost in the long run. Thanks for always inspiring me! :)

Couldn’t have said it better myself! This has been on my mind so much this week. It’s the perfect post to read the day before my move out to the West Coast. Excited for what lies ahead.

Love the vintage look of your photos, surely they was taken recently but has an old feel to it. Amazing and free spirit

it is interesting how things appear in a person’s life…this summer has definitely “scared the crap” out of me. we have been evacuated from our home since June 3 and don’t know when we will be getting back in…our city has experienced a flood that only happens once every 500 years. your article has put a new perspective on things for me…thank you

meganna -August 1, 2011, 7:20PM

thank you so much for this. it was exactly what i needed right now. :)
