Hi there. Today's post is a ponderer. That is, no answers or wisdom. Wonderings and wanderings. Join me?
No matter what precipitating dilemma or event brings my clients to me, the work always involves change. Setting goals means doing things differently to reach a new outcome. It means showing up differently to have a different experience. It means change.
Some of us thrive on change. We change to change. We love the newness. We love the learning curve. We love claiming ignorance because, after all, we have never done this before...
Some of us struggle with change. We fear letting go of the way things have been. We hold on to what is familiar. We don't want to make mistakes. We don't trust that our choices will lead to something better.
Change involves courage.
Change involves a deep longing.
Change is a comittment to something bigger than ourselves.
Change is a comittment to ourselves.
And then there is the ultimate paradox:
Change doesn't happen unless we accept what is. Unless we accept where we are right now. Unless we accept who we are right now.
What do you think?
What do you know?
What are you pondering about change?
