Reduce Stress - Accept Change In Life Is Constant
This Week's Simple Tip
There are some things we count on in life, one of which is the sun rising and setting every day. Some days those events are more visible and beautiful, but they consistently happen at about the same time every day of every year. And in between those two points each day, lots of things happen in each of our lives. Some of them are expected while others are not; some are good and others not as good. Some of the happenings trigger change and the need to let go of the life we were used to or envisioned, which enables us to embrace the new life waiting for us. Change in life is continuous so we benefit by accepting the 'in between.' We don't always know where it will lead to, but we do know that we will always feel comforted by the consistency of the sunrise and sunset marking the beginning and end of life's daily pattern.
This Week's Focus
This week, rather than become frustrated, upset or disappointed that something 'in between' did not go as you had planned, accept it as part of life's bigger plan and adjust around it. You'll likely be grateful down the road for the change in direction.
