Handling change CAN be fun... when we allow life's lessons to arise from the ashes... as we learn to EMBRACE change. Get creative and learn to curve with the unexpected that comes your way...
Find a creative way for doing what you were trying to do, and most of all, learn to quickly improvise, or as we say: "punt" to find out "you CAN" create creative solutions -- especially at your most challenging times!
Being forced to get creative could be seen as hard -- OR -- it could be seen as FUN and INCREDIBLY empowering! Like... seeing life as a game, and your challenges as the obstacles put before you that you just *know* you CAN get around! It's all about how we *see* it all... and how we *see it all* is OUR choice.
Life can throw very hard curve balls... and... we CAN find a new way... IF we think and respond, creatively to meet the challenge that has shown up in our path. AND... how we see it all, makes ALL the difference in the world, for what comes next -- and, for how we EXPERIENCE what comes next, as well!
As a choice, we can ALLOW... and in so, embrace a GREAT new experience resulting from something very unexpected. It's all about CHOICE. OUR choice. For how we SEE, and how we RESPOND to things outside of our control.
So... when life presents things you did not plan, or that you do not want... find a way to FLIP the situation, to see another side.
Find a *positive* side to the situation... and there you will find *the silver lining* ... the unexpected good that came from something... not so good. And THEN... be GRATEFUL for all that has occurred... For, without the "bad" or unexpected thing... you also would not have, the good that came, as well.
So... aim to see, embrace and take IN the *lesson in the madness* of your situation. And then... through the very moment of your awakened gratitude, the WHOLE situation actually SHIFTS right there. Change happens -- again! Through *getting* the lesson, WE shift the situation, and next, it ALL changes, again... to relieve you of the situation that created the *lesson* in the first place, and allow an even better *change* to come, because you GOT it! You GOT the lesson, and now, a NEW way is able to arise, all anew!
So THIS is just the tip of the iceberg... for handling change with much greater ease. Change IS going to happen... it always does. Sometimes by our choice, and other times not. How we choose to respond, how we RECEIVE the situation makes ALL the difference in the world!
We can ALLOW change to move through our experience with greater ease by unraveling *the lessons* in what is occurring, to help "the old" that has arisen, move on, while allowing "the new" to come forth with greater ease!
So... when life throws you unexpected curve balls... aim to CURVE and SWING... because you CAN!
