Your Holiday Coach Moment #3
What if the holiday is or the year has been a shit show?
What if meaningful relationships are in tatters or you not only didn’t reach your career goals, you’re out of a career? And what if your body/health has changed, but not in the way you had intended when the year started?
Sometimes in the cycle of life—and life is a cycle—we end up in a turn that is tough.
It’s hard to remember that this is natural. Our tendency is to believe that things must always be improving is simply against the laws of nature. Things fall apart, die and contract.
We are Most Excellent at Adaptation
Now may be hard, but I’m here to remind you that it’s not wrong! Change, and change that we deem ‘negative’ is a part of life. Our natural response is to try to hang on, hunker down and resist it – keep things the same. But, what we are most excellent at as humans is adaptation, resilience and growth through adversity.
Even if things are not your choice or the way you wish they would be, there’s a high probability something good can come from it. If something is dying, chances are there’s room for new things to grow in its place. Whatever you’re moving away from, there is something to move toward. There’s information to be gleaned and used inside it all. And, in spite of appearances, you are moving upward. Sometimes the only way to advance to the next part is to leave things behind.
Looking at Change as Opportunity
We always have a choice in how we view what’s going on around us. Feeling the fear and allowing it to dictate our actions keeps us scared and stuck. Feeling the fear, but choosing to look at change as opportunity, allows hope and growth.
You will adapt. You have before and you will again. You got this.
I invite you to take a moment, or many – Coach Moment #1
Embrace the imperfection – Coach Moment #2
Enjoy the season (as best you can).
I send you Peace & Love
