From Rekha: Is change frightening or exciting?

So many people I work with are frightened of change.  They come to me with a barrel load of issues that cumulatively create a lot of discomfort in their lives but still they are scared of what might happen if they change it, so they insist on holding on to it as it feels safe.  So I wanted to take some time and talk about what I think about change.

I believe change is something we can not stop, our bodies are constantly changing growing from foetus, to baby to child, teenager, adult and then we go thorough the process of ageing further.  If we believe this is bad then sure enough it will give you reason to be unhappy however if we look at this change as miraculous, just as the caterpillar comes from an egg, goes into a pupa and then becomes a beautiful butterfly then beginning the cycle again the butterfly mates and lays eggs and withers.   To date I have never heard anyone call or describe a butterfly as something that is bad, hard, terrible or ugly!

So why not give it a go, allow yourself to evolve and change?  Rather than holding yourself back in a state of discomfort believing change is hard, why not call it beautiful and what mother nature intended for us! This then makes the whole concept an adventure, exciting, no longer frightening. So we enjoy the process of becoming something even more beautiful!
