For many (or most) of us, the word “change” can be scary and/or uncomfortable. It is a word and a concept that can mistakenly take us by surprise and cause a shift in our daily routine. As I sit at a cafe in Ubud, Bali, looking back on the past year, it is undoubtedly crazy how much change I went through. In May 2017 I put in my leave of absence at my corporate job, preparing my move to Chile in June, and not having the slightest clue as to what to expect. My move to Chile brought immense amounts of change, in some ways more difficult than others. It brought about the obvious, like language, culture, and living situation changes. But along with those came others I did not expect - changes with my way of thinking, my beliefs, what I really want out of life. Not to mention huge changes spiritually - not just within my self but also in my career. Continuing forward, my move to Chile led to my one month stay in Bali, an enormous change that basically happened overnight, and would not have been possible without my South America venture.
So how do we deal with these changes when they arise? How to we break out of fear mode to allow the changes to come into fruition? From someone who likes to control things, we must trust. Divine timing is always perfect. When we are presented with a challenging change or perhaps an “out of the blue” seemingly positive change, we must feel what we are going through and use it for personal development to further better our lives. Change is the catalyst to growth, which is the catalyst to positive transformation, which pushes us to living our highest potential. We must know the dark to experience the light. We must believe as we delve into new concepts and ways of living. Once we accept change, our growth accelerates. Moving forward, if change is extra scary for you, start small. Watch how the little day to day changes you make greatly affects your life. From there, trust builds and even greater miracles will occur. <3
