How to Embrace Change and Improve Your Life
Things change. Some things change for the good, others change for the bad.
Whether we like it or not, change happens.
I’m sure I’m not telling you something you do not already know. If you are reading this, you are probably standing at a crossroad of change right now.
You are not alone. I’ve stood at that same crossroad, and I always feel like I don’t need to be there. I want to be somewhere else.
Let’s face it: change is hard.
It’s hard because we don’t know what’s coming. We don’t know what’s next. We wonder what the future holds. We wonder if we will be okay. We wonder if we will be equipped for the journey because we know that change is a journey.
Beloved, although you may feel uncertain and unsure of yourself right now, know this: you will always have what you want and so much more for the journey. Life will always help you.
The Divine Nature of Change
I don’t believe in accidents. I believe that every moment in life is a consequence of purpose as well as development. We are always growing and changing. That’s life; growth and change. We’ve been growing and changing since the very day we were born. It’s a natural process. Everything on earth changes all the time.
Look around and you’ll notice that everything changes on a daily basis. Every day of your life you get a little older. Your skin is different. Your hair is different. You lose some hair today and hopefully you’ll grow it back in the right places (smile). Your cells change too. Neurocells that send and receive messages throughout our body renew daily.
The world changes too. When a tree falls in the forest, it no longer stands and the forest is different. When natural disasters occur, the landscape of the earth changes. When the wind blows the sand on the shore, the beach changes.
Nothing stays the same; therefore, everything changes. Instead of resisting it, embrace it. Continue to reading and let me to show you how to incorporate it with ease.

Discover A Universal Truth About Change
Universal truths have stood the test of time. They are true whether we believe them or even know they exist. I’ll discuss one of them and share how it relates to embracing change. One is: what goes up must come down
What goes up must come down has been scientifically proven in gravity. This truth is also evident in other areas besides gravity. The stock market is one area. When evaluating a stock it is best to look at its progress over the last two to five years. Usually, when a stock trends up it will grow for a while, then at some point it levels off and starts to fall. No stock ever stays at the stop permanently, it will eventually fall.
This truth is revealed in history. Throughout history, powerful dynasties and empires rise and then fall. No dynasty reigns forever. The beneficial news is that when a sizeable empire collapses it brings about a change. The change occurs because another dynasty or empire has risen.
What goes up must come down reveals that there is a pattern of change. Change always occurs with;
- A beginning (the birth and emergence of something)
- A middle (the building and development phase)
- The ending (the change, the collapse, the decline)
All things must come to an end, and all things must begin again. That is why change is needed, and it must be embraced as a cycle, a part of life that cannot be avoided. Change must be accepted if we are to be experience new things, grow from those experiences and move on from on those experiences to explore new things.
Now it’s your turn, what change do you most resist?
