It’s no secret, embracing change is one of the secrets to living a life filled with happiness and joy.
Yet the real question is…
How do you embrace change?
If you are anything like me, at times embracing change can be challenging and difficult. Especially when it seems as if the change that is happening isn’t helping only hurting.
Yet, the fact of the matter is, to learn and grow in any area of life. You must be willing to embrace change.
Indeed, Gandhi is often quoted as saying…
“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” -Gandhi
Stated differently, embracing change begins by looking within yourself rather than the circumstances surrounding the change.
Because, let’s face it. We often resist change when we believe we are losing something. However, the key to embracing change is by maintaining an awareness of what you really want.
In other words, if you want to have more love in your life, then you must become more loving.
If you want to experience more peace and happiness, then you must become more peaceful and happy.
That’s why spending time in prayer and meditation, plays such a huge role in your ability to embrace change and enjoy the rest of your life.
It’s simple really, the more you pray, the more prayer becomes an attitude of life.
The more you begin to shout with joy that this is the day that the Lord has made.
What’s more, one of the benefits of meditation is it gives you the space to see yourself clearly and objectively. For just a moment, you can step outside of yourself and be a witness to the cravings and agitations of the mind.
And the more time you spend in prayer and meditation, connecting to that power and love of God. The more you will begin to realize that happiness is a choice that you get to choose.
You can begin to move forward in life and embrace change, rather than resisting and fighting what is.
Truth be told, change happens. It’s how this world of temporary illusions operates. But the good news is, you can still live a life of joy and happiness. All it takes is a willingness to let go of control and let God be in control of your life.
