Changes that occur naturally throughout every season reassure us that the process of change can be exciting and beautiful. Therefore, changes we make within ourselves no longer need to grip us with fear because we recognize they are an important, integral and natural part of our lives. When we open ourselves to change, we actively correct old patterns of behavior that simply do not work anymore. We begin to take courageous steps to protect ourselves from unacceptable behaviors of others toward us. Choices we make are examined more closely. We develop an uncompromising view that we are meant to lovingly care for ourselves and others and will accept nothing less in return.
Changes are not made simply for change sake alone, but to produce a forward momentum toward a purposeful way of living. A compelling desire to live a more meaningful, compassionate life that is aligned with personal values and beliefs becomes a stimulus for change in a person’s life.
