As summer recedes and Autumn appears with its darker mornings, early nights and the unavoidable twist of the thermostat dial! October could trigger pessimism rather than optimism especially with the Brexit deadline looming! Change is unremitting and it remains one of the very few constants in our life. Sometimes we are prepared for it, every so often it is forced upon us and occasionally we make the decision to change. Yet whilst we can't control much of the world changing around us, we can control how we respond. Learning to anticipate and embrace change, rather than fearing or resisting, for many, is easier said than done. Change can be something we would rather avoid, creating resistance and denial causing both individuals, groups, companies even nations to prefer to settle for things as they are rather than embrace the transformation. Resisting change is like trying to stem the flood, futile and ineffectual.
Perhaps we would rather not look at our own lives and admit that change must happen, if we are to grow. By and large it’s easier to point to others who resist change than recognise or admit to our own change resistance. After all change will create yet more change which subsequently impacts not only on ourselves but also those around us and our environment. Burying our heads in the sand, putting up and shutting up, only prolong the misery. But perhaps it is easier to remain distracted and discontent rather than address patterns of our behavior. Could the thought of change be too great and hold too many fears for us to overcome?
Whilst many are standing up to change both locally, nationally and globally, sometimes we could all do with a little help feeling better about ourselves and the world around us. Thanks to Action for Happiness and their October Calendar, this could be your month for optimism!
