New Year Project: On Change

words by Epictetus

I have several competing emotions that rise up whenever I am about to embark on a drastic change. Excitement, terror, optimism, nervousness. As you'd know from experience, change can be frightening and uncertainty is never pleasant. Since security is one of the most basic things a human being needs, to feel uncertain is to feel fear.

It always comes back to fear doesn't it, the things that hold us back?

This year, I plan on coping with the changes I've decided to make in my life by having complete faith in myself. I also intend to keep track of my progress on a regular basis. I also need to understand that to be able to make my life better, then I have to embrace change. I think the most effective way to do this is to decide on the person I want to become, and work towards being that person.

How do you feel about change? How do you cope/adjust to change?

take care,
