Wendywoman Prepares for Change

Are you prepared for change?  Do you invite it into your life so you can manage the visit or do you wait for it to announce itself unexpectedly, throwing your routine into chaos?  Pay attention to all the conversations you have today and count the number of times it involves the change of something:  your job, your weight, and your spouse …. You get the idea.  All too often we talk about change, but we only want it on our terms.  When it becomes an adventure into the unknown because it is unplanned, we flounder in the darkness until it consumes us or we fight back and overcome.   It doesn’t really matter who you are or what you do; I guarantee you are stronger than you think.  In fact, it takes a dark night of the soul to figure out how strong you really are.  Outsmart your change challenge using some simple crisis survival tips to move yourself through unplanned change. I used these when I got fired, got divorced, and my mom got hit by a truck on her morning walk so I know they work.

    1. Doesn’t really matter what is going on in your life, you have to own it.  I don’t care how you got into the mess or who helped contribute to it, in the end, it is your mess and it is only because you acknowledge that it is your mess that you can clean it up.  This exercise does not require that you concern yourself with anyone else, just yourself.
    2. So often we say, “I’m sorry” to others but never say it to ourselves.  Next time something goes awry, stop and repeat:  I’m sorry I got myself into this mess.  I forgive myself for the choices I made.  After all, our life is the sum total of all the choices we have made in the past.  To the extent you don’t like your life, you need look no further than your choices.  If you have made some bad ones, forgive yourself.  I routinely forgive myself every night before I go to bed for anything I have done that has not been for the greater good of all involved.
    3. Love yourself through thick and thin.  Who needs enemies when we beat ourselves up constantly for what is going wrong in our lives instead of loving ourselves for what is going right.  My favorite thing to say to myself:  I love you Wendy Ann Komac.  I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, happy, healthy, productive and prosperous.  If I can’t love myself, I’m of no use to anyone else.  In fact, if you can’t love yourself, you are destined to be a crabby crappy person.
    4. Worry changes nothing, faith changes everything.  Your faith will not be effective if you focus on your pain and short comings.  You have to have faith in yourself before anyone else will.

For the next week, every time you get yourself into a jam, just quickly say:  “I’m sorry I got into this mess, I forgive myself.  I love myself just the way I am.  I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, happy, healthy, productive and prosperous.  I am thankful I get to change my choices so I can change my life.”    You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by taking responsibility for your life.  The winds of despair will always be blowing but you can change your choices so you can change your destiny.   Many blessings for a prosperous, productive week!

Love,

Wendy
