Living in the
Change is hard for many people to accept. However, it's worth keeping in mind that part of growing as a person requires you to accept that life is constantly changing. We might lose our jobs, lose loved ones, have to relocate unexpectedly or have other life-changing things happen to us, but these changes are just part of life. We might not like how society is changing or how our community is changing, but we need to be able to cope with these changes in a positive way. Luckily, there are many ways to view change, to adjust, and to ultimately accept it.

|Coming Full Circle|
When we come full circle, there is the feeling that we have come to a familiar place, but we are somehow different.
Life is a circular journey through our issues and processes, and this is why things that are technically new often seem very familiar.
It is also why, whenever we work to release a habit, change a pattern, or overcome a fear, we often encounter that issue one last time, even after we thought we had conquered it.
Often, when this happens, we feel defeated or frustrated that after all our hard work we are still dealing with the same problem.
However, the reappearance of a pattern, habit, or fear, is often a sign that we have come full circle, and that if we can maintain our resolve through one last test, we will achieve a new level of
mastery in our lives.
We know that we can handle challenges that seemed insurmountable when we began our journey, and there is the feeling that we might be ready to take on a new problem or some new aspect of the old problem.
We feel empowered and courageous to have taken on the challenge of stopping a pattern, releasing a habit, or overcoming a fear, and to have succeeded.
At times like these, we deserve a moment of rest and self-congratulation before we move on to the next challenge.
Remembering that we will be tested again is important, but it's also important to pause and take a look at the ground we've covered, honoring our courage, our persistence, and our achievement.
Then we can begin the next leg of our circular journey with a fuller understanding of where we are coming from.
