5 Things to Remember about Change

There is really only one thing that never changes: CHANGE. It is constant, yet most of us resist change because it can be, and very often is, uncomfortable. When we don’t see it coming, change can be disruptive, and when do see change coming, it can cause stress.

No wonder we don’t like it. We humans are creatures of habit and we like it when things stay the same. We seek our own comfort zone and strive to maintain it. Some of us do our best work in the rocking chair of our comfort zone, but usually not. Most of us need a good challenge to get our creative juices flowing. And nothing challenges us more than dealing with change.

Whether change can be predicted, or comes out of the blue, it always offers opportunities. Here are five things to remember about change.

  1. It came to pass – it didn’t come to stay. Change brings new things and pushes old stuff out. Changes constantly pass through our lives, never staying for long. We can choose to regard its events as either positive or negative while in the midst of change. It is up to us to decide how to use our new circumstances to benefit ourselves. And there is always benefit. The benefit may not reveal itself easily but if we expect to find the good in change, we will. Remember that change teaches us to look for the good.
