Weekend Challenge: Learn to Embrace Change

weekend challenge

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” ~ Lao Tzu

We are often resistant to change – and, rightfully so. As humans we crave stability, comfort and control, so when things change, it can be a very scary and daunting phenomenon. Fear of the unknown, being taken out of our comfort zone, loss of control, realizing that we no longer can do the things that we once were able to do, are all reasons why we resist change. The thing is, change is a constant. Nothing stays exactly as it is. Nothing. It is the only thing in this life that is inevitable, so doesn’t it make more sense to embrace it rather than to fight it?

So this weekend we challenge you to do just that. Try to embrace change rather than resist it.  After all, it is change that helps us to achieve our goals, and it’s change that helps us to grow and evolve.
