How much change have you experienced this year? Change is constant in all of our lives. No matter what you do, whether you ready or not, you will experience change. Change happens. How you react to change is a personal issue. It is your attitude about change that determines how change affects you. Try asking a person to make significant behavioral change. Depending on the person’s attitude, it can be neither a frightening request or no big deal.
Some of us view change positively, and some see it as an exciting opportunity to learn and adapt while others allow fear to control their behavior. How you feel about the changes in your life and the way you deal with a situation is a choice. You cannot control others’ actions, but you can be responsible for your own reactions.
The serenity prayer states “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” When applied, this can be a great stress reliever. Look at your situation and ask yourself “is this something I can change?” If so, start exploring positive ways to change the situation.
If the situation cannot be changed, such as an illness or the economy, accept it for what it is. Accepting does not mean giving up. By accepting the life situation simply means finding ways you can cope with what cannot be changed, and staying positive to keep a healthy attitude spiritual and mentally . Always remember to continue to evaluate the changes in the light and it’s important to remember that you control how life changes affect your life.
