Living Powerfully with Change

 Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood.
–Daniel H. Burnham

Change is inevitable.  It is inescapable.  It can be unpredictable or by choice.  Change causes discomfort when it asks us to make modifications to an uncertain future.  Trying to keep the status quo leads to frustration, anxiety, and hopelessness.  It need not be hopeless, but a gift.  

When we allow ourselves to be unencumbered from holding onto what was to what’s possible, miracles emerge.  Change is our gift to delve deeper into our self-expression.  It is giving birth to our next chapter in life. There are countless potentialities within each of us.  Avoiding change is burying our heads in the sand and not seeing the light.   

Right after something happens to alter our life in a way that looks foreboding due to loss of someone or something, we have a natural tendency to talk about it with others.  We share the grief and fears that consume us during the crisis.  Then we may even engage in the “blame game.” Blaming others for our misfortune. 

However, a blame gamer gains even more misfortune.  When we blame others we give them the power and see ourselves as powerless.  We fight for our limitations instead of our power that is within us.  Overcoming loss deserves mourning the loss and accepting responsibility for our future.

Making changes from choice has another ring to it.  To transcend either change requires a deeper knowing of oneself through discovery, creating a vision, planning and being in action.  

You are a miracle.  Miracles happen all the time for you to see and manifest.  Transitions are the way to have your light shine brighter regardless of age, income, career or circumstance.  Heal the loss and then access your power to design the future you are meant to have with each transition.  

Every transition is a gift to grow deeper from what was to what is to be.  You are the master of your life and the gifts it holds.  Trust it – trust your intuition – and experience new adventures.  Some will not work, but what is the alternative to not trying.  There is magic in taking the journey through transition.  Anything is possible!  

Times of transition are strenuous, but I love them.  They are an opportunity to purge, rethink priorities, and be intentional about new habits.  We can make our new normal any way we want.
