I’m grateful that things change when I change. I’ve come to realize that blaming, shaming, rationalizing, and justifying, whether it’s to myself or others, only keeps me in the energy of fear, lack, and separation. Things change when I change, for better or for worse. Taking full responsibility and accountability for the energy I’m projecting out to the world is an ever enlightening experience. Layers and layers of weight have been taken off my back by simply making different choices that change my reality.
I used to give my power to change away to the point where I felt empty inside. I couldn’t see beyond the painful stories I kept playing like a broken record. I remember thinking time and time again, “Why should I have to be the one to change?” The answer, because I’m the only person I’m responsible and accountable for changing. If I’m living a reality that I don’t want, I have to change my thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that keep me aligned with the energy attracting the chaos back to me. This was not an easy truth for me to face. At times, it still isn’t, but in the end I’m grateful I know if I want things to change, I have to change.
Wholeheartedly embracing this has helped me establish and maintain the healthiest boundaries, self-care regimens, and relationships I’ve ever had. If you’ve been reading along with me on this journey, you’ve seen many of my layers of discovery along the way. Life keeps bringing me what I need to change and grow in wonderful ways. It also shows me where I’m holding onto old thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that are no longer serving me. If my energy is aligned with fear, lack, and separation, I’m not serving myself, humanity, or this planet. If my energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace, my thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors are serving the highest good for myself, humanity, and this planet. I’m the only one who is responsible and accountable for changing things in my life. Don’t think I’m saying this and not needing the reminder myself, I write it because the more I write, think, and believe this way, the easier it is for me to remember it when a challenging situation comes up where I have to use the wisdom to make necessary changes.
Today, I commit to flowing with change. Being scared of change doesn’t serve me. When I flow with change, I am open to doing things differently to get different results. Just writing this piece got my creativity sparked on how to improve different areas of my life. Every time this happens, I think of other areas I’ve improved and how I went about making changes. I know that I have to change thoughts, beliefs, habits, words, actions, and responses in order to create the shift within myself, so I have to consciously think about how I do want to see things in order to determine what’s NOT aligning with that vision. Healthy change is good for my well-being, so why not allow it to flow? Here’s what I’m going to do today to go with the flow of change for my highest good:
- Find audiobooks that align with my vision for whatever area of wellness (i.e.creative, emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual, environmental, social, financial, and occupational) I’m looking to practice healthier patterns in.
- Pick one area of wellness to do more intensive work in at a time, though it will benefit multiple areas of wellness. Trying to do it all at once has never worked well for me. Today, my focus is on my financial well-being.
- Make a healthy simple change in each of the 9 areas of wellness (It can be as simple as consciously changing a thought about something, deep breathing, putting a dollar in a jar, etc.)
- Stay aware of the messages playing in my head and how those messages are serving me.
The point of this is to help me stay open to the flow of change and welcome in new ideas that will serve my life in healthier ways. My unhealthy thinking in any area of my wellness keeps me from serving myself and others to the best of my ability. I’m choosing to consciously guide changes in my life to flow in the direction of love, abundance, and peace and I LOVE THE DIFFERENCE IT’S MAKING IN MY LIFE!
