This is my last blog post for 2016 before I welcome a new life in to the world for our family in 2017.
The changes occurring in our lives with this new life arriving have not been easy, I’ll admit. I’m a planner and perfectionist, and children (even when wanted and welcomed) are not beings that can be organized, planned, or put into neat little boxes. They bring joy and chaos into a family at the same time. The unknown.
I’ve been hibernating over the last few months; preparing myself, my patients, my home for these new changes.
“What is right for you will find you without struggle or suffering, and if it isn’t right, you are being redirected.” ~Alan Cohen
So while change feels chaotic, it has found me without struggle. The moment is here, and I am being redirected to a new way of being. My mind may not like the unknown, but the unknown is roaring in. It is the new way. It may be challenging or sleep-depriving or body-altering, and not necessarily easy, but it is coming easily.
This is an important lesson for us all in the middle of change!
When we seek wellness for ourselves on any level, the movement towards that new and “right” can indeed feel scary. Even if it means we need to say no more often, eat less sugar, head to a new gym class…change is hard. Ultimately, if the changes we seek are meant to give us a more joyful life, they will flow towards us. We will be able to make those changes. We will find the support we need. We will meet the people that help us.
As I take a step into my new way of being for 2017, I wish you all on new journeys in any direction courage and faith, that what is right for you will find you, with ease.
