Change often brings out the best and worst in us. Many of us welcome change, just as long as nothing is altered or different from before!

The thing is, every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. And endings can be really hard. 

Sometimes we feel in our soul that things need to change, however, we stay in situations just because it’s comfortable. We ignore that inner voice that is telling us something isn’t right. The biggest mistake we can make is ignoring our inner voice. Often this voice is encouraging us to take up something greater – It knows your potential. As Mahumid Ali said – “if my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, then I can achieve it”. 

We must change the way we look at things, and then the things we look at change. Sometimes we are holding on to things that don’t serve us just because we don’t see enough advantage in making the change. But if we ignore this inner voice, we sit in misalignment with our life, our values and who we are, and this is not a comfortable place to be. It’s time to make a change. 

There’s a trick to the ‘graceful exit’. It begins with the vision to recognise when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over – and to be ready to let it go. It means letting go of perceived identity, a lifestyle, status and the known for the unknown without denying the past importance this had on our life. It involves a sense of future and a belief that when one door closes another opens. 

When you take risks, you will learn that there will be times when you succeed, and there will be times when you fail, both are equally important. Failure isn’t fatal, but failure to change might be. 

There’s a dichotomy when it comes to life. It’s the longest thing we experience, but it goes by so fast and feels so short. It’s easy to assume that we’ll have tomorrow, next week, and next year to do the things we really want. The truth is, though, that life is precious and isn’t guaranteed.

You’re always one decision away from a totally different life. The nature of life is change, but the nature of people is to resist change. 

What we resist, persists, so if your soul is calling for change, take time to listen to your inner voice, and trust that everything always works out for the better. 

As they say, change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
