I have had a lot of requests lately for a blog on how to make life-changing decisions. I promise you guys, that blog is coming! This week I want to talk about how to deal with big life changes that are made for you or that happen to you. Basically I want to talk about how to deal with change that you did not choose.
The world is experiencing incredible amounts of change right now. But even so, change is a natural part of life. Whether it’s something large or a small nuance, change has a way of bringing up feelings of fear, uncertainty, doubt, and sometimes even apathy and pessimism. While we all know we cannot control what happens in the external world, we can always adjust our own sails and learn to sail in whatever life brings us. This is true empowerment.
This week, I hope to help you adjust your mindset about change. You have the power and the tools to navigate whatever life throws at you, you just need simple reminders, like this weeks blog, to get you on your way.
Be strong from the inside out. No matter what happens in life, remember that you are strong, capable, important, and loved. Remind yourself of this every day. Know your worth and own your worth.
Remember that life is happening for you not to you. Sometimes we don’t get what we want, but we get what we need. If things happen that aren’t what you had hoped for, ask yourself how you can see the situation differently, or even what you can learn to reframe the situation. Life tends to have a way of working out even when we can’t see how.
Stay steadfast in your core beliefs. When you know yourself, your truth, and your beliefs, it’s hard to truly get derailed in life. Sure we might waver from time to time, but it’s easy to come back when you’re confident in truth. Make this truth of high importance in your life.
Remember that life is unfolding just as it should. Life may take us on detours to what we truly want, but it is all about the journey not the destination right? Remember that sometimes the detours are what get us to something even better than imagined. Remember to have trust and faith in the plans that are unfolding behind the scenes.
You have the power to course correct. The external world may continue to throw you curve balls, but luckily you have the power of free will as a human being. Learn to recognize when you can make the choices not to take on the things that don’t truly feel right for you.
Small right actions are the way to change discomfort. Difficulties and hardships may feel like steep mountains to climb, however, it’s comforting to remember that taking small, forward-moving steps will always get you to the top.
I hope these reminders help you with anything you might be going through right now! Sending you all the love in the world! Let me know what else you would like to see on the blog in the comments below.
