Change Can Be Painful, Yet So Beautiful
Life really never ceases to hide surprises around each corner, doesn't it? How do you feel about change in your life? Some women freeze in fear at the thought of change, while others seem to easily embrace it. If change makes you feel unsure or worried, try look at it from a different angle. What would happen if we viewed change as an adventure or the start of a new book in a series? It probably wouldn't seem so scary then - you'd maybe even look at it as being fun. 

Change can bring on uncomfortable emotions though, such as grief, and I think it's really important to take the time that you need to grieve any unanswered dreams, prayers, or losses. I personally experienced this when my husband Clinton and I discovered that we would not be able to naturally conceive our own children. It brought on a new chapter in our lives and a wave of grief settled in. 

There came a moment during my grieving season where I had to ask myself if I wanted to stay in this place or if I wanted to rediscover my hope and joy again. I chose to make the change in that moment and to take the little steps forward to heal. That change was not easy, there's still moments where I feel so sad, and if that's what you are experiencing too - it is okay! Feelings are not right or wrong. Give yourself the grace and the time that you need. Just promise me you won't stay in that place for too long. 

There are so many blessings in this moment and ahead on your personal growth journey just waiting for you. If you have difficulty with change, care for yourself today by journaling, writing out a new affirmation, or spending some quiet time in your favorite space in your home or outside.
