Letting go, moving on, accepting change and starting afresh… these are some of the hard parts of life we’ve all gone through, or are going through or will eventually have to face. Let’s face it nobody can avoid it and there comes a time when we all have to go through this. So my blog is not about accepting this fact but about finding the strength to face change.
Most of us don’t like change and will often avoid it. Why? Maybe because we’re so settled in a monotonous way of life we’re used to and accept our daily routine as life. But no. This is not what life is about…Life’s a ride, full of its ups and downs, twists and turns but meant to be enjoyed every second that we spend on this ride. What’s the fun or excitement of starting a new day when one already knows what’s the schedule like? Sometimes it’s good to not know.
Moving on to finding the strength to accept this change, I feel it needs to come from within. There is no person or thing but yourself which can get you ready to face change. And to do that one needs to be patient. There’s a right time for everything and anything done before that time just leads to confusion and misconceptions. Whether it’s work, family, friends or other relationships we all need to take it slow and give things their own sweet time to happen. Rushing into anything will never be the solution.
Also one needs to infuse optimism and faith in oneself about the fact that one is capable of accepting change. Moving on and starting afresh is never easy. There are certain emotional attachments which you don’t want to let go and I’m no one to tell you to do so either! All I’m asking is for you to remember the positives of the past and make space for the new memories your future creates for you. Spend time with yourself, reflect upon your memories and your past and think. Think of whether what you’re holding onto so tightly is worth accepting monotony in life. Think about when you feel ready to move on, about the process of moving on, and more importantly about what or who you need to move on from.
Materialistic things are easier to move on from, we simply find a new fantasy😋 Change in people on the other hand can be tougher to accept and that’s fine! We’re only human 🙂 Go easy and be patient with yourself. Be as compassionate towards yourself as you might be towards a loved one. It’s okay for you to take time, make mistakes and think of even giving up at times. It’s natural. But remind yourself of your parents, or a friend or someone who loves you and think how they would feel on seeing you give up on yourself ask yourself, “ Am I not worthy of some self-compassion?” I guarantee the answer to that question will always be that yes you are! What’s the point of being nice to others when you can’t be nice to yourself. Summing up, take it slow and go easy on yourself! Take your time to figure out what helps you move on. Life isn’t that short.., you’ve got plenty of time to explore your options. And remember, Always Do It With A Smile. You may not believe me but your smile is the reason someone else’s smiles! So spread the love and joy and keep on trying 🙂
Share your experiences with me and tell me your journey of accepting change! Good luck 🙂
Until next time….!
