Throughout our lives there will be rollercoasters of change. Change in our homes, change in our schools, change in our friends, family, careers, and all aspects of our lives. For some this may be scary. At first, change was scary and hard for me to process. It would make me anxious, make me itch, scratch, and get worried about every possible thing that could go wrong with the new change in my life. Not anymore, Ive come to accept change and the need for it in our lives. Here are some ways that Ive come to accept why change is good:
1. It can challenge you
Change is good to challenge you and make you learn new limits you've never reached. The human mind and body is constantly evolving and constantly learning new limits. Don't be afraid to go outside of your comfort zone to explore new beginnings. You'll never know what you're capable if you're never pushed.
2. It can lead you to new opportunities
Don't close your mind off to new possibilities. You may be comfortable in your own home, in your workplace of over 10 years, and with the people you've known since middle school. But the world is so much more than these things that you already know and are comfortable with. There are so many other things in this world for you to explore and people to meet that you may never expose yourself to if you close yourself off to anything beyond your comfort zone.
3. It can take you places you've never been before
A new job, a new school, a new home. All things that can take you to new places you've never been before. New doors to open and walk through, new people to meet, new opportunities ahead. The world ahead of you is endless, let yourself travel.
4. It can shape you
Some of the most uncomfortable and challenging moments of our lives are when we truly find ourselves. Our strengths, weaknesses, likes, and dislikes, what breaks us down, and builds us up. Change can be the valley we need to reach a new, exciting peak. It can push us beyond what we believe to be our human capabilities. You may find yourself a lot more flexible with the never-ending fast-paced schedule of life when going through change.
5. It can bring you confidence
Often when we keep ourselves confined to comfort zones we never find a drive to push ourselves to try new things or embrace new talents. This can lead to us becoming sedentary in our daily lives. However when change comes along it is new and exciting and can spark passion in individuals to give them new-found confidence to embrace.
I hope these few positive tips and tricsk to dealing with change can help you learn how to embrace the never-ending rollercoaster of life instead of bracing for impact when an intimidating change comes your way.
