I quite enjoy change. It feels like the world is constantly changing, how do we keep up? Change of government, iPhone updates, and fashion. If you asked me two years ago I would have said I disliked change immensely! The thought of moving my bed to a different place in my room freaked me out or parking on the other side of the garage. As I get older, I accept change a lot better. Living in London, England grew me so much as a person sometimes I cannot remember the person I was before I left. It forced me to like change. So here are a few steps to help with change.
1. Pray. I cannot stress this enough! God can truly change your perspective on things. It happened to me two weeks ago. I went to bed feeling one way, and the next day I woke up feeling completely different, and extremely confident. After spending the day with God and really thinking/praying I saw how he changed me. And this change was certainly for the better.
2. There’s always a reason behind change. Whether it’s moving your bed to face the window, or buying a new car. Think of the positive, having your bed closer to the window you will get more air flow at night which is better for breathing. Buying a new car, the car will be more reliable, and more fun to drive.
3. Nothing is forever. Shoes wear out, people get older, and trends fade. Once you come to terms with that, life gets easier. Our world needs new things to grow and advance.
4. Know the truth, and what’s important. It’s easy to freak out over small things, but when it comes to a loved one passing away how are you going to react? There are bigger things in the world than changing all the pens at work. Maybe you liked those old pens, but you might like this new pen better. That sounds silly to get upset over it but we can’t sweat the small stuff. Let it go, be mature and prioritize.
