Sometimes you think your life is great. You love what you are doing, you enjoy it, and you feel excellent. No need to change anything. Just keep on going. At least, that’s what you are hoping for.

But most times it won’t stay like that forever. Something is going to happen, something is going to change. No matter what, it will come.

And at first, it sucks.

If you like where you are at with your life and feel like it finally is the life you are meant to live you aren’t very eager to see it getting taken away from you.

Every change is making you uncomfortable, that’s normal. Change always means that something unknown is waiting. And guess what, we don’t like not knowing what is going to happen. Because it might kill us. Or, we just won’t like it. No matter the risk, our first reaction is fear.

And that’s a good thing. That’s our mind trying to keep us alive and safe. So thank you for that.

But it also isn’t great if we kind of panic every time something changes. It can get a little annoying, and the constant fear stops us from doing things that might end up making our lives better.

So we should prepare ourselves. By that, I mean that we are aware that our world is constantly changing. Nothing stays the same. And that’s a good thing. Because change might bring us even closer to the person, we are meant to be.

But how can we prepare for change we don’t see coming? And aren’t sure if it is the change we want? And don’t know what the outcome might be?

I don’t know the full answer to that but what I know is, that it has a lot to do with trust and attitude.

With trust, I mean that you can develop an inner certainty that everything happens for a reason and that it is going to be alright.

And you are responsible for your attitude regarding anything. Everything, even unexpected change, is something neutral. And it is you that gives it meaning. So you can either go on auto-pilot and declare every change a potential threat and see it as something negative happening to you. Or-and now it is getting interesting-you can see it as an opportunity to grow. You can welcome it, no matter what it is, show gratitude, be happy about it make the very best out of it.

So trust that it is the right thing and make the best out of it. The world isn’t happening to you, it is happening for you, and with you-if you let it.
