How to Change When Change is Hard

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

The Daily Good title caught my attention, but I needed to reread the article a couple times.

talks about dealing with change by switching our thinking from a ‘solution’ focus to ‘bright-spot evangelizing’; from approaching a problem with our rational mind to approaching it with gratitude, knowing that, “Even in failure there is success”.

Without a doubt, that advice is easier ‘said than done’, but yet it rings true.

We weren't reliving Ground Hog Day – we were succeeding in our failures. We were learning something new about ourselves; our triggers, our strengths, our weaknesses – something that made the next step in the journey different.

As Day 8 - BREATH OF LIFE from HeartFire Gateways heartfiregateways.com/ notes, we were discovering,
• “What excuse has been keeping you from stepping beyond the boundaries of day-to-day habits…?”
• We were then taking the next step, we, “Acknowledge(d) it and release(d) it.”
• And finally we were giving thanks for our small successes and incorporating them into the journey.

“When you listen, it's amazing what you can learn. When you act on what you've learned, it's amazing what you can change.” - Audrey McLaughlin

Here’s to listening, learning and acting on our way to becoming "AWAKE! ALIVE! AWARE! and Appreciative of ALL that IS".
