Change….Something we in this human experience are resistant to. We RESIST the natural ebb and flow of life….moving…the passing of a loved one…the death of a pet. Instead of processing our feelings and let them go, we become a victim of this thing called change…and so begins the building of the “dam” in the flow of the river of life.
Over time, this dam becomes a blockade to all the most amazing feelings….joy…bliss…peace and love. Recently, I found myself going in to resistance to change. As I contemplated moving across the country to a beautiful new place, I found myself making excuses. The “What if’s” began to play in my head. What if they didn’t have the stores I was familiar with? What if? They didn’t have art classes nearby for my kids. What if? I felt lonely….
Then I realized that this was the beginning…I was picking up my twigs and putting them in the magnificent river of my life. If I allowed these nagging thoughts and insignificant fears to stop me…I would never move anywhere…not just physically…but further into consciousness…further into LOVE. And so I made a CHOICE. I will go forward into the grand ADVENTURE…despite my doubts and FEARS. I will lay down my twigs and stand joyously in the river. Come…what…may…..Count me “in”.
One thought on “The FLOW of CHANGE”
Love this….would love to share this,by sending this to my husband, who lives too much in “What if’s”…and will not seek job options outside of our state! I feel he will find greater opportunities outside of our state,even if it is to just start out in the right direction. But…if I was to say this to him,he will notl isten…until another says the Same Thing! Many hugs!
