We all know that change is constant, so why do we try so hard to keep life the same? We stay at jobs we hate, relationships that need to end, and continue with bad habits when we know it is hurting us. We want to change, but for many people taking the first steps is the most difficult. Life is giving us clues and hints about the direction that would be better for us, but we stay and never allow the changes to occur until a crisis happens. We're shocked and upset and then start to blame life and everyone else for our circumstances, but still we fight it all the way. In "The Consolation of Philosophy" Boethius is struggling with his changes in fortune, his female spirit friend is telling him that change is always happening. It is absurd to believe any different.
Change is constant for sure, but one way to work with change is to make small changes everyday. For instance, if you walk to work a certain way then change your route, if you eat the same food all the time then go to a different restaurant, if you talk to the same people everyday then join a group where people are totally different. You get the idea.
Life is meant to be an adventure, but change doesn't have to be big and epic. It really is the small steps that we take that makes life interesting, sacred, and fun. When we look deeply within ourselves we know change is inevitable, so why don't we talk our power back and change before change has power over us. I mean you can't control every outcome, but you can be flexible enough that when change occurs you're okay with something different and can allow the flow to happen. You'll feel so much happier and lighter when you make change a part of your day.
