April Affirmation: Embracing Change

April Affirmation: Embracing Change

Every day as I go out to explore my neighbourhood I am bombarded with the sounds, scents, and evidence of spring. Mother Earth is waking up and it truly is a beautiful thing to observe!

In its beauty, there is so much opportunity, creativity and chaos. During winter while the world was asleep and resting there was peace and quiet. But now all has changed!


As much as I love the changes - as much as I have longed for them, I find a part of me is resisting it too!

A part of me is longing to go back to sleep, a part of me is saying the peace and quiet were perfect and a part of me resents them being pulled away from me...

...and it’s made me reflect on how I handle change.


I would love to tell you that I am amazing at handling change - that I always go with the flow, ready to face the uncertainty of the future with grace and style.

But that won’t be the truth. The truth is I love consistency, I love routine and sameness and I love the idea of knowing what each day will look like! If I am totally honest, I really adore the feeling of being in control!

And so even though I long for adventure and even though I value growth, a part of me always hesitates when it’s at my door!

And in that hesitation I find myself telling so many unhelpful stories!

I tell myself that the change and the growth will be harmful, and painful.

I tell myself that nothing will be the same now - as if that’s a bad thing!

And I begin to look for danger: What might not go “right?” What am I going to lose?

What might be uncomfortable?


And so every day I remind myself of this month's affirmation:

“I trust the new things that life is bringing me are gifts for my benefit.”

Albert Einstein famously said that each person must make an important decision in their lives. They must decide whether the universe is friendly or unfriendly.

For so many of us, our natural tendency is to believe the universe is unfriendly - thanks to our ancestors and their need to run from the sabre tooth tiger we are always looking around at what can harm us, what might put us in danger. That’s normal and natural.


But it is not the most beneficial!!

It doesn’t allow us to be our highest self.

It doesn’t allow us to live out the more beautiful world we know is possible!

If we can make the shift from seeing what the world brings us as dangerous, to seeing everything as a gift for our benefit the way that we experience our lives can be completely different!

We can begin to anticipate and look forward to the changes, we can lean into the opportunities, and we can rest in the comfort of an abundance mindset!

So if you are tentatively looking forward to the gifts of spring - the newness, the creativity and the chaos - use this month's affirmation to embrace the experience!

She believes that life doesn’t have to work out exactly the way we think it “should” in order to be enjoyed and that people don’t have to be perfect in order to be loved.

She believes that we all have the voice of truth inside of us but sometimes it can be hard to hear. And most importantly that we must live between the tension of accepting the things we cannot change and taking massive action on the things we can!

Meg creates spaces where women can slow down and process all the things that are influencing and controlling their lives - their everyday thoughts, emotions, and the stories they have been telling themselves.

Spaces where they can look at their inner world, gain valuable insight and then reclaim their personal authority, and make conscious decisions that transform the way they experience their lives!

Through one on one coaching, group coaching and workshops Meg helps women show up in the world with more love, and less ego, more compassion, and less judgment, more vulnerability, and less shame, more emotional agility and less fear!

I love what you wrote. And yes, let’s go back to the winter months, but spring brings joy and happiness. I embrace it.

I resonate with Einstein’s quote and your comments on it. I think our choice of attitude is based on the context from which we view the universe. For example, do we perceive it as an extension of this crazy, violent and chaotic world (in which case it’s understandable that we’d be protective and fearful); or do we see the Universe as the Infinite realm of love and light. If it’s the latter, and we feel connected to it, we will trust and embrace change, and even take risks to create more change. Thanks Meg!
