The Greek philosopher, Heraclitus asserted that “Life is flux” meaning everything or all things change. That is, change is inevitable and cannot be avoided. It is the one thing that is guaranteed in life and will happen whether we want it to or not.

How we respond to change will have a significant effect on how we experience it when it comes along. When we welcome change as a natural and necessary aspect of life, we can experience the winds of change as a positive, empowering and ultimately beneficial force that seeks to help us evolve and grow.

If we fear or resist change, we often feel it as difficult, challenging, unsettling, frightening or unpleasant. We are truly doing ourselves a great disservice when we resist letting go of what is ready to be released and eliminated.

When we look to nature we see that change is a very natural process.

The seasons change, leaves on trees change colour and fall, rain comes and goes, day changes to night and so on. These natural changes are all part of the rhythm and cycle of life. When we apply this principle to our own lives we can recognise the inherent perfection of everything that happens as the means through which we grow and evolve into a more authentic and true expression of ourselves.

When we purposefully and proactively welcome change we can enjoy better quality relationships, feel more empowered and have more meaning in our life.
