CHIRP of the DAY
Good Morning!! Isn’t this a beautiful day?? Or is it?? Well, for a “Northerner” in Illinois, this is March & we are near the end of Winter…..or are we?? Last week we had snow on the ground & were having sub-zero windchill temps, BUT…..yesterday hit a record high…..78 degrees!! Of course today is 50 degrees, but we had a preview, albeit brief, of Spring, our FUTURE!!
You see, things are NOT always as they seem & things do NOT always go as planned!! It seems like something is always coming up…..getting in our way…..derailing us!! At least that is my experience. I have learned that these unexpected little “bumps in the road” can be one of two things……..a ROADBLOCK….OR….an OPPORTUNITY to learn & grow!!
NONE of us are born loving CHANGE!! It is how we learn to VIEW that change that makes all the difference in the world for us!! Yes, change IS a roadblock at times. Perhaps the Universe is trying to tell you something, have you just stopped to listen?? CHANGE is a fact of life & we have to learn to live with it!!
I have learned to stop & listen for a moment when presented with a change of some sort, whether anticipated or not, whether welcomed or not, whether prepared for or NOT!! Taking that brief moment to catch my breath & just listen can make ALL the difference in my reaction to the change or the roadblock.
Next time CHANGE raises its ugly head in your face, try this…….
- Listen to the facts of the change or roadblock
- Take a deep breath…..slowly & then slowly let it out
- Take one more deep breath….slowly & then slowly let it out
- Just be still for a moment, opening your mind & spirit for a quiet minute or two. This resets your brain.
- Now, look at the facts, think about the change & make a plan!!
CHANGE can be your worst enemy or your best friend!! Change presents us with an opportunity to grow & to better ourselves & our world.
HOW WILL YOU REACT TO THE NEXT “CHANGE” IN YOUR LIFE??
May stardust & moonbeams light your path……..
