Be open to change

Be open to change. Be open to its willingness and accept the idea of change. Change means we’re making progress, change brings new ideas and with it new opportunities. Change can transform us; change brings about new choices.

Whether we choose to embrace change, it’s an inevitable part of life that happens whether we accept it or not. Change doesn’t wait, it comes whether we decide to ignore it, or not.

See change as something positive, that way you’ll get to feel more comfortable about it. Change allows us to move on from old issues, some we’re okay with and some that we’re not. Be open to change if it means a brand-new life.

Finally, when we’re open to change we allow for spiritual and emotional growth. It’s something we should all learn to embrace.

  1. I agree. I know that I am not great with change, but I also know that I have to learn to accept that change is inevitable and I should see it positively and move on.

    1. Yes change isn’t easy, but you’re right we all must learn to accept that change is inevitable.

      It’s so important to accept change and move on. We cannot hope to live well adjusted lives in the present time without moving on from the past. Either way, whether we are responsible for our past or not, it’s not fair to inflict our thoughts and feelings about our past experiences on others, particularly if our experiences have hurt and we’re finding it hard to let go.

      We must be open to change. We must also learn how to let go and change so that we can have a better future with our loved ones.

  2. I’m not keen on change. I’m okay with most of it, but there are things I don’t want to change. I struggle with it a lot. I guess I’m just set in my ways.

    I plan my days out around appointments etc and if it gets messed with, I get out of sorts; but I agree with you on this. We need to go with the flow and accept change, because sometimes it’s for the best.

    1. Thanks Lisa. I wonder if you struggle with change, because it’s different to what you know and find that part of change awkward, or is therefore something you deal with that makes you struggle with change?

      Change in itself is difficult, particularly if we’ve lived one way and we’re having to adapt to a new set of circumstances. In many cases, it’s the apprehension we fear that stops us from moving to change, but change is inevitable and as you say it’s sometimes for the best.

      Any form of change allows us to move on emotionally. We just have to give ourselves that chance. For myself accepting change has allowed me to move on emotionally from my past experiences has changed me as an individual.

      I was a different person back then. Emotionally and spiritually I have grown through change. Change has been good for me.

      1. I think you’re right. changing anything is different to me. I was trying to remember if my parents were like that.

        The only thing I can think of is everything was planned. We knew in advance what we were doing the following week and sometimes months in advance. I really do get my “panties in a wad” when things get changed.

        Sometimes I let people know I’m upset but most of the time I just deal with it. I guess I’ve been disappointed so many times due to change that I do get my feelings hurt when it happens.

        It’s like looking forward to going on vacation and then it doesn’t happen for some reason or other.

        1. Thanks Lisa. You’ve brought up a good point. When our lives are planned in advance the way yours was, it’s not surprising you found change difficult.

          When we learn to do things spontaneously, we’re more likely to be open and will probably adapt so much better. Don’t get me wrong, change will still be difficult because we’ll always have to work through change, but we’ll adapt because we will have no choice but to adapt.

          Too many changes can have an affect on us emotionally too.

  3. I must admit, I’m a little stubborn when it comes to change.

    I still listen to old music, dress conservatively and I’m one of a few people left that still whistle. But change is inevitable whether I like it or not.

    1. Thanks Tim. It’s a breath of fresh air to hear you say that. Many people are stubborn around change, but the majority of us probably won’t admit we are!

      I agree with you. Change is inevitable whether we like it or not, therefore it makes sense that we are prepared for it when it happens and just embrace the whole change thing.
