Just like many other people, I too struggle with change. I’m not sure if it’s fear of the unknown, having to adjust to something different, or fear of failing. Whatever the reason might be – change is definitely uncomfortable for me.
However, I’ve learned to shut my eye and dive into change (figuratively speaking). I think of it like when I was a kid and I’d stand at the edge of the pool wondering how cold the water was going to be but back then I didn’t wonder for too long, eventually I just dove in. Sometime the water was so cold that it would knock the wind out of me and I’d gasp for air until I adjusted, other times I’d jump in and all was find.
Change in life is no different. Think about it – you jump into change be it leaving or starting a new job, ending or starting a relationship, buying a house or ordering a new/different meal at your favorite restaurant. It will either knock the air out of you and you will gasp for air until you adjust or nothing happens and the change is seamless. The thing is, we won’t know until we’re actually in it. And the longer we contemplate something the more excuses we find to put it off or simply not do it at all. I can speak for myself when I say that in spending too much time contemplating whether or not change should happen I’ve missed opportunities.
As you can see I’ve made some changes to my website and I now have a business name: Toltec Therapy Services. I contemplated the change, I fought the change, and I gave in to change and now I make it work (gasping for air until I adjust). So I guess this is my long winded way of inviting you to witness and enjoy my change. WELCOME!
