Change is usually hard.
Even if it’s a good change like getting a new job or buying a house.
It takes time to adjust.
When change is unexpected and seemingly negative or unpleasant, it’s even harder.
Maybe you don’t want to change: you’re happy where you are, doing what you’re doing.
But change happens anyway. You can’t stop it.
Everything is always changing.
Life is fluid.
When change is unexpected, it’s easy to resist.
To push against the flow of change.
To push against the flow of life.
Resistance makes that change feel like a bad thing.
Like a bad thing that’s happening to you.
You become a victim.
No one likes being a victim. Feeling like a victim–being a victim– continually breeds feelings of discontent.
Everything is worse when you feel like a victim. All of the bad things are amplified.
Everything bad is happening to you.
What if change was never a bad thing?
What if you chose to think of even the unexpected changes as wonderful things?
Everything would be different.
You wouldn’t be a victim.
You’d take power back into your hands.
You’d take your life back into your own hands.
I choose to think of change as a wonderful thing.
Things are no longer happening to you.
