Sometimes there are things in our life that we have to live with for a while; a certain challenge, situation, or behavior, before we are ready to make a change. The key part of this sentence is “before we are ready to change”.
There are times I face challenges, mostly in …my behaviors and thinking, that lead me to wonder if I am ever going to be rid of this particular problem; but there are 2 sayings that I have identified with the most in the last 4 years of my life and they are as follows”
When the pain of remaining the same is greater than the pain of Change, then we will do something about it”.
“When we get sick and tired of being Sick and tired ” we will do something about it.
These two sayings have really helped me to understand that people all around me can tell me I need to make a change, however until I am ready for that change it will not make a difference. Sometimes I have to live with a particular problem long enough to know that I truly don’t want this situation in my life anylonger. If not I may let it go for a while , only to allow the issue back into my life at a later time.
I am so grateful that my God loves me enough to step away and allow me to learn life’s lessons on my own; Much like when a mother must allow her children to suffer the consequences of their negative actions in order to learn from them.
Today I know that from the moment I want there to be change, no matter what the situation or behavior may be; the process starts taking place. When the process starts from the “state of awareness” the Universe will bend my way; allowing events to bring me the answer I truly desire.
I no longer think of consequences as “bad things” ; I only think of them as opportunities to be rid of areas in my life that are no longer acceptable; opportunities to learn and grow into the person I truly desire to become.
