Since we’ve been back in NY I have taken a front row seat and watched how the earth naturally changes from….winter into spring!
I’ve spoken about change in past posts and I can’t stress enough how important it is for one’s personal growth. I am reminded of this more and more as the weather here in NY has gone from winter into spring. The earth magically shifts into a major change going from cold and white to warm and fluorescent! Earth changes without hesitation and as some of the shifts appear to be ugly such as a horrible storm what waits on the other side is always such beauty…
Change in our own lives is the very same way. Very few of us trust change and we find ourselves unhappy, over weight, dependent upon drugs or alcohol and the list goes on and on. It’s time to begin exploring ourselves and learning when our seasons change. Embracing the time to shift and riding along that wave into the next chapter!
I’ll use myself as an example here…back in my twenties I would change my cars every 2.5 years. Yup, I was one of those. Just as I was getting ready to pay one off I would hop back into a new payment plan. But that didn’t matter to me, what mattered to me was the NEW car I would be singing in. I’ve had convertibles, Jeeps, 5 Speeds, sports cars…Another biggie for me was moving the furniture around in my apartment. Back then I wasn’t into interior design like I am now however you could walk into my place and find the couch relocated to another wall or even the clothes in my closet were re organized. And the same with boys. I would find myself in a 3-9 month relationship and then taking a break for 4-6 months. That was me, always changing things up.
Change is constant. And I just feel it deep within my bones when its about to come, sometimes it burns. But I’m happy to say that I know the feeling, I can identify what time it is. This is when my ability to dig deep within comes into play. I’ll begin to take longer walks, listen to zen music and even close myself off from the world for a little while. I’ll be very careful of exchanging conversation with weak people, those who nag often or have no control of their own minds. It’s easy for me to get caught in their web’s and those can be very dangerous for me at a sensitive time, such as transformation.
Many wonder why I call Steven my partner. Well, this is out of respect for change. When we became pregnant we both new getting married was an option but I knew of my ability of change. We both agreed its better to be partners, a relationship that would focus on building a foundation that our son would rest upon. A place where he could be safe at all times, loved by both and he would be first on the list. Steven and I have changed numerous times in these last 5 years and feel we’re a step ahead of the game. Our very own belief system has been the key to a very successful partnership! Change comes knocking on our door we just keep handing it a glass of wine and say, cheers!
Change is key! If you don’t believe me then let your car run without ever getting an oil CHANGE. Yup, don’t give it oil and don’t CHANGE it. Let me know how that works out for you.
Here’s to change
