Most of us are taught that change needs be hard, that it’s a long and laborious process. For some things, this is true.
It’s not a physical possibility for you to be in one place on Earth at one moment and then a thousand miles away the next.
But, for other situations, change can be instantaneous.
Take the nature of emotions, for example. You can go from happy to sad to angry to amazed all within the span of one hour. Do you know when one emotion shifted to the next? Are you able to pinpoint the exact moment when the change occurred? Probably not.
And so much of life is like this.
We start down one path only to immediately realize that it’s not going to work. This can trigger a long grieving process, or it can be the start of a beautiful new chapter in our lives.
Too often, we only see this years down the road, with the acute benefit of hindsight.
It’s not necessary, though.
Anything can happen at any time. Moments can be dull, or they can be alive with the sense of possibility. Much of the time, what is different is not the moment itself–but the way in which we respond to it.
Change is a process that is always alive.
We must train ourselves to be alive along with it.
What did you think of this short Sunday update? I hope it caused you to think about your life in a new way.
Be well this weekend,
P.S. If this spoke to you, I hope you’ll share it with others. You can start the change process.
