I find change frightening and as I look back I have aborted the possibility of so many potential new beginnings and opportunities due to this fear. Today I am sharing this meditation from Tian Dayton’s book Daily Affirmations for Forgiving and Moving On, on the subject of risking change.
Today I recognise that all growth requires change,and all change involves risk and that these are scary and difficult.
If I am not experiencing discomfort in my feelings, then I am not really changing.
Deep meaningful change is hard won. It is not easy. It requires courage and commitment.
When I am not willing to take any risks, when I chose only to stay safe, my life becomes progressively more narrow.
When I am not willing to risk being hurt, my relationships become more shallow.
When I am not willing to search for a Higher Power, I have to make do with the stories and descriptions of other people’s God.
I have the courage and willingness to change.
Observe always that everything is the result of change, and get used to thinking that there is nothing life loves so well as to change existing forms and make them into new forms.
