One of the greatest gifts I ever gave myself was being open to change.
I spent so many years trying to get “back” to what I thought I wanted and needed, only to realize I was becoming more closed off and stuck - as I continued backwards.
Sometimes the greatest plan, is to not have everything planned. If we predict and plan everything about our future, we close out the possibilities of new opportunities. I’ve found this to be true on many levels in health, relationships and career.
Don’t get me wrong, goals are important. My greatest goals remain to be mobile, functioning, pain free, happy and productive. I’ve started to achieve all of these in many ways, and they remain a standing goal as I continue to work on them to be sustainable. The only way I’ve been able to do this however, is being open to change, and being able to adapt as needed.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned for sure, if we resist change, we’re also resisting opportunities.
Does change scare you, or excite you?
