Why do we fear change so much? It’s natural.

Why do we fear change?

Why do we fear change?

Get clear in your head.
Get clearer in your heart.
Take action – every day.  One baby step at a time.

~ Amy Woidtke

Change is not rocket science.   We make it more complicated than it needs to be – we fear it, we run from it, we procrastinate it, make excuses for why not it.. and so on and so forth.  We waste ridiculous amounts of time and energy fearing change.

The funny thing is…change will find you.  It’s inevitable.  It’s one of the 3 guarantees of life:  We are born, life changes and we pass on.  All of this in itself is…guess what…change.  So there you go. 😉

The very nature of life is change.  You can see it every day.  Right now, the leaves are changing colors.  The weather is getting colder and rainier in Seattle.  Every live being and entity changes.  You really can’t avoid it.  Even when you try to avoid it, it will knock on your door, louder and louder, until the knock is so loud you really can’t avoid it anymore…so you heed it, or you die, eventually.  Even the process of dying is change.

Are you picking up what I’m putting down? 🙂

So…WHY is it that we spend SO MUCH TIME running from this thing called change?  It’s like another one of those “no good bad words” for some folks.   Most of the time, the change we are running from, staying stuck and miserable in our lives, is the VERY thing we NEED in order to feel better.  So what is SO GREAT about feeling stuck and miserable?  So you can wallow and complain with others aka throwing our own pity parties.  You know them – we’ve all thrown them.  *haha*

What if….you took that SAME amount of energy you wallow and complain with…and applied it – are you ready for this? – to change.  And WHAT IF the result of that sky rocketed you into the life you dream of living?  NOW, you could spend that same amount of time you spent complaining with others…celebrating!  YAY!!!

Nelson Mandela said:  Be the change you want to see in the world.   Maybe the change you want to see isn’t so big as the world…is just in your small circle of folks.  Here’s the kicker…sometimes, when YOU change, the folks around you that are the most annoying “miraculously” change too…or they just fall out of your circle.  And that’s ok too.  You will find new empowering and supportive folks, if you choose, to celebrate with!

Can you imagine that?  Try it on! 

  • What would that FEEL like?
  • What would you DO?
  • Who would you BE?
