     Winds of Change

    Winds of Change

     Time changes everything, and we need to be able to re-evaluate our own lives and the direction we are headed in. It doesn’t matter if the direction is one we have selected for ourselves, or one where life itself has lead us there unaware. Sometimes those things that we thought mattered most, are not important any longer. Rather, things that we overlooked or have forgotten from the past come closer to our new reality.

    Change is an emotional experience that reminds us that nothing is permanent. It teaches us to prioritize those things that are really important.

    Change can mean loss, but it can also mean gaining as well. Changes can impact our lives right out of the blue without any time to accept what is happening to us; nor plan for what will come next. Sometimes you are just thrown into the mire and expected to sink or swim. There is a time of uncertainty where you do not know what is going to happen.

    Dealing with change isn’t always easy. You could try to forget about the change and get used to new items or circumstances. You can choose to Ignore the changes happen in your life. But in the end some level of acceptance has to take place.

    There are a number of factors that increase ones struggle to change. We have to learn that change happens for a reason. We have to learn to teach ourselves the truth. Not all change will have closure, but we have to learn to build those emotional bridges over that portion of our life so we can move past a particular moment in time.

    A number of quotes that emphasize overcoming change are as follows:

    • -Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future ~unknown
    • -The key to change… is to let go of fear ~unknown
    • -Change is the essence of life ~Reinhold Niebuhr
    • -Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become~ Reinhold Niebuhr
    • -Ecclesiastes 3: 1-22 ~The Bible

    Benefits of Change

    Unknown opportunities and new experiences are a benefit that can come from change. While change is inevitable in everything we do, change keeps life interesting, and ensure that bad situations won’t last forever. Change gives us the opportunity to move on with our lives.

    We have to look at the positives of change and draw from that energy. We have to give change a chance to move us, teach us, and mold us into something new – something better.

    When the past becomes the guide

    When The Past Becomes The Guide

    People tend to rely on the past as a means to prepare for the future.  While it is true we need to learn from our mistakes, are we allowing the past to control our future?

    Picking a time in my past that was riddled with mistakes and completely altered my life course, I ponder on how things could have gone differently.  We tend to focus only on the negative and often times allow that negativity to guide our present and future decisions.  Unfortunately, this way of thinking doesn’t help us resolve the conflicts or problems that haunt our memories.

    If we use the past as a guide and look for the things that went right instead of focusing on the negative,  we have a valuable tool at our disposal.  Using what we know today and incorporating the positive things of the past helps us make better future decisions.

    Past reflections:

    I recall a matter between an individual who was very close in the business sense as well as being a close friend.  I trusted this person with my back in every sense.  I knew he was going through an extreme amount of turmoil in his professional and family life.  I too was caught up in my own personal life struggles.  While we were very close,  we really didn’t know each other like we thought. If we could have looked at the struggles each of us was facing,  together, we might have avoided a head-on clash of wills.  A clash that would last for years.  An unfortunate error called “being human”.

    We each had our own set of values for life, complete with its checks and balances.  But were those checks and balances flawed?  Could either of us today remember the real story the way it really happened or did we just reflect the story as it related to our own concept of reality?    The pictures we have of life are often murky when we are facing difficulties.  Truth too often gets in the way.  Our anger and our feelings of being wounded cloud our better judgment.

    Letting the Past Guide the Way

    The upside to many of our past problems is knowing that the past is also filled with things that went right. Things that are good and bring light and happiness to the faces of those who care to remember.  If we use the things that went right we can help make the present much more relaxing, and the future peaceful.  Letting go of our flawed memories is a good start.

    I acknowledge that some things in the past need to stay there.  But for the honest mistakes and misunderstandings, the old saying Let It Go applies.   When the past becomes the guide you are on the path to regaining those valued relationships.   Trust can be re-established and friendships renewed, but it’s a focus on what went right that will get you there.
