And Just Like That

There are different periods in our lives when the pace of change seems to come in waves. Maybe it's just me, but I seem to have significant personal and professional issues hit all at once.

One of the ways I've decided to manage the flood of emotions that comes with "so much" happening at the same time is to frame it all as a real blessing.

The self-talk goes something like this..."thank goodness this is all happening now, so I'll be done with these chaotic times all at once."

Um, that is not exactly how life works though.

The counterpoint to my thank-God-I'm-enduring-so-much-madness is that lots of change simply feels like a curse.

Now, I'm a pretty optimistic guy which is why my first reaction is usually in the "blessing" mindset.

But...there are times when the emotions gain control and my attitude gets sidetracked for a time.

That is how life works sometimes too.

How About You

What is your gut reaction to the reality of change in your life? Is it a burden...a opportunity to grow...or a curse?

I'd love to hear from you.

No Excuses.
