Being ready FOR change is different than being ready TO change. Many of us think that change means we need to restructure who we are and how we show up in the world. Nothing could be less true!  I know that I fear change because of this reason. I’ve worked hard to figure out how to present myself, how to process my thoughts and ideas, and carry them out.  I don’t want to change “me.”  Yet sometimes my instinct tells me that everything is not quite as it could be. There’s a nagging feeling in the pit of my stomach that “I just don’t want to continue doing what I’m doing.”  This is signal that change is knocking at my door and asking me to invite it in. It also means I need to face my fears. Fear of insecurity if I change the way I seek clients. Fear of undoing what I’ve taken years to accomplish. Basically: fear of failure.  Yet if I believe that even experimenting with a change can lead to a myriad of new ideas and directions for my life and work, then I am ready for the blessings that come with willingness to change. And the great thing is, I can always change back to my former approach…and nothing is really lost.
