So many times in life we yearn for things to change, and yet we often feel we don't know how to get started in the direction of the desired change. We also lose sight of the fact that change is the center of life so it would stand to reason that things you desire in your current reality are not necessarily things you will want or need for the rest of your life...just for a time. Sometimes we look back at a change we made and realize it no longer suits us, but that is how it is supposed to be as that change was what you wanted and needed at that particular time in your life.
I can remember thinking more often than not, that I would change (this or that) in my life if only I (had more money, had more time, had help, had a partner, had blah, blah blah). Soon after that thought I would give up because everything felt as though it hinged on having something else that I didn't have.
What I now know from experience is this: If you go after it, you will obtain it...period. I wanted to move to Oregon and, at the time had very little money, but I threw caution to the wind and decided to have blind faith. I put it out there that that was what I wanted to do and suddenly I got all these ideas about how to raise enough money for the move and how to find a place to live when I got there.
When you desire change you have to go forth aimlessly and meet fate head on with no fear, no plans in place and no concrete evidence that what you are about to do will succeed. Some call this blind faith. Having faith in yourself and what you want is what brings it all about. I have people say to me all the time that they would do certain things "if they could" but they are scared that they will not succeed or, on the other side of the coin, they know that in order to achieve the change they desire they will have to stir up what will feel like a hornets nest within their circle of family and friends and that scares them or stops them. In either case, you have to want it badly enough to know that you can have it and that whatever you have to do or "stir up" in order to achieve this change, will be worth it in the end. There are some situations in which it can feel worse before it gets better, but that doesn't have to be the case. If you are true to yourself and true to your convictions about what you are doing, there is no reason to feel bad about your choices. Feeling good about them and being confident that you can have anything you desire is the only way it will come about.
Yes, you will undoubtedly feel at times like you have to go outside of your comfort zone, but then again, comfort is overrated. No one ever said that life will be comfortable at all times and, because it isn't, you can therefore appreciate comfort more when it comes along. I so feel for people who bury themselves so deep in comfort zones that they seldom, if ever, stray outside of them and therefore never really live. Sitting home and watching t.v. after work may be comfortable to some and I'm certain there are those people who really want nothing more out of life, but don't you want to live your life? Don't you want to experience all of the good and wonderful things and experiences there are out there before you die? Don't you want to know that all changes can be good and prosperous and joyous?
Do yourself this justice...wander aimlessly toward what you want to change in your life and meet and greet that unknown fate. Throw fear in the garbage where it belongs and know in your heart and soul that everything WILL work out...it always does and it always will.
