Feel Good Friday-With Crises Comes Change


“Complacency is a state of mind that exists only in retrospective: it has to be shattered before being ascertained.” ~ Vladimir Nabokov

Like it or not change catches up with you at some point in your life. It’s impossible to avoid because it finds you, challenges you, and force you to reconsider the way you’re living your life. A crisis usually brings change into our lives. A crisis brought as a result of choice or chance, either way, we’re faced with having to make a choice of changing or not changing. But on the other hand, it’s best to make the change on your own accord, rather than to be forced into it.
Whether by choice or chance, those crises are unavoidable because it’s these events that challenge our complacency. What is controllable in our lives while facing these challenges dictates how we choose to react to them. It’s the power of CHOICE that allows us to create positive changes in our lives. There are many changes you can make in your life that can make it better.
Spend some time sifting through what’s important in your life and why it’s important to you, by finding out what it is that you’d like to achieve in your life and what truly makes YOU happy. In addition, try to be flexible in achieving your goals, as situations in your life change your goals need to reflect those changes.
