This morning as I sat down to write this week's blog, I was aware of how much has changed for me over the last three years.
On a physical level, I have lost a lot of weight, and I am now slimmer and fitter than I have ever been in my adult life.
My daily routine and business life are unrecognisbale from what it was, and even the office I sit writing this in is full on new and bit and pieces that have been required to produce all the digital media I need.
And on an emotional level, I am calmer and less stressed than I can remember for a long time.
All the change I have experienced worked out to be for the best and the fact is, change is always for the best. But even though I know that, I am still guilty of fighting change.
And I am sure I am not alone. How many of you reading this feel uncomfortable with change? How many of you have done everything to avoid change, only for it to happen anyway?
Change is the way of life, nothing stays the same forever, and that is how it should be, the old is replaced the new, and that is how progress happens.
I shared a quote on my facebook page today by, and I think its a great strategy for dealing with any change that is happening to us and it is:-
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
So the next time you feel yourself resisting change, remember this quote and focus on the future.
