“Continuity gives us roots, but change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights”. – Pauline R. Kezer
“We need continuity and stability in our lives in order to feel safe and to be able to build things, but change is that element that makes us hope for better and greater things.”
Change is among us now as we enter into fall. You can see it with the color of the leaves and feel it with the change in the air. We also anticipate it with the upcoming election, Covid life style changes and the economy. So how do we face all of these changes?
One breath at a time and one moment at a time.
Change begins with allowing yourself to feel all of the emotions that come up. Stress, anxiety, fear and sadness can all surface when we are experiencing change. And that’s okay. I feel like we are constantly being told to get rid of these feelings. Yes, we should not sit and dwell and drown in these emotions, but pretending we don’t have them is not healthy. Who in our society does not feel these emotions with Covid , the election and the economy? Acknowledging these emotions, understanding where they come from and letting them go is a much more healthy approach. Ask yourself the hard questions. Why am I stressed? What can I do to make changes in my life so I feel safe? Sometimes having a plan is enough to help ease and let go of some of these emotions. Having a close community of people who share your views and are supportive helps too. Additionally, yoga and meditation are great ways to feel control of your life.
You can have all of this with my Zoom community. There’s so much love, support and compassion with my Live Stream Zoom classes. These classes bridge the social distancing gap and help us to feel that sense of belonging. This community spends time chatting before and after class, we have Zoom social parties, we dance, sing and even cry together! What are you waiting for? Join us for some much needed support during all of these changes.

“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves. – Viktor Frankl
‘Unfortunately, we don’t always have full control on the things that happen to us. Whenever we feel unable to change a situation, we discover that our only possibility to escape it is to change ourselves. The challenge to work on ourselves instead of focusing on external conditions is one of the most important mission we have to undertake in life.” Read more: https://www.spiritbutton.com/change-quotes/#ixzz6cGXQPpVu
Change is inevitable. There are times when the chaos of change feels unbearable and the feeling of uncertainty is over whelming. But, we must remember that when everything settles down the world will shine brighter. Find ways to cope with the chaos and remind yourself that you are not alone.
We are all in this together. One breath at a time and one moment at a time.
I am always here if need some support. Whether it is to talk, cry together, or to give you a virtual hug!
Love and Light.
