Time Changes. Have You?

This time of year, there are all kinds of changes going on

Leaves are turning color, trees are becoming naked, the ground is becoming soggier, the air is getting cooler and yes the dreaded/celebrated time change (at least still for most of us). And the holidays are quickly approaching.

With all of this change, it may be a good time to examine the change in your life. Oh, you say it’s not a good time to change? I get it. “Too much going on,” or “things are really going great,” so the last thing you want right now is change. However, the only problem is that change is always taking place.

Embrace it.

The problem with change is that we only want to recognize abrupt change or change that we’ve been ignoring until one day we see a picture of ourselves or we take time to reflect on days gone by. However, embracing the daily change in our lives can be one of the most rewarding things we can do.

Most importantly, every day we have what I like to call “life experiences.” In other words, everyday things happen. You may meet or encounter new people, co-workers, a friend tells of events in their life, you see new things, or maybe old things that you just now notice. In addition, all of these encounters shape who it is we are and they occur daily. Most of the time without you ever noticing or recognizing it these daily occurrences change:

  • your thought processes
  • your opinions
  • your mannerisms
  • the way you dress
  • possibly what you eat, where you go. So, you get the idea.

All without you consciously noticing.

Don’t analyze. Realize.

Quote of Andy Warhol They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

Now, I’m not proposing that you start analyzing everything that occurs in your life and how it may change you; however, I am proposing that you recognize that it is occurring, and here’s why that’s important.

Most change in our lives occurs very subtly and without us even recognizing it. Because, when we start recognizing it, we can start changing little by little by little things that we may want to change, or may not want to change. Either way, this my friends is called “taking control of your life.”  Day, by day, by day. You will be amazed at small changes that will provide you with big results. As a result, you will begin to wake up every day with renewed energy seeking every opportunity that arises that day to enact daily positive change in your life in a direction you control.

In a nutshell (they are dropping this time of the year too 🙂 you can shape your own direction to where you want to go. You don’t have to drift in the directions others may be leading you to go. And, that can be a real challenge in our current age of social media!

You can achieve it.

Life Long Happiness! Live It! Don’t Be A Cow!
