Looking At Change

This is a year of changes, and it is only May!

Change

Change

I for one, have never been great with change! The reality of the situation is that change happens whether I want it or not. The energy, time, emotion, and effort, that we spend could be used so much better if we didn’t chase what we know can’t be changed. For example, trying to help another who truly has no desire to change is a painful exercise that usually ends badly.

In just this year, I have seen so much change in such a short span of time–some good, some not so good.

Here are some questions to ponder when trying to decide whether your energy is being directed towards the appropriate target:

 

–Do I envision problems that are not really problems?

–Am I taking on other people’s issues, on top of my own?

–Can I address each change, here and now, and enjoy the positive and deal with the less positive?

–Do you have a strategy or philosophy for change?
