Do you ever feel like life picks you up, shakes you around and drops you somewhere else? This new place might look like home, but something has changed.
Every week in my practice, I meet people who are going through change and they're trying to go back to normal. Change is tough, whether it’s good or bad. It happens through bereavement, relationships breakdown, job loss and financial difficulties. Change happens when we start romantic or friend relationships, have kids, start new jobs and experience financial security after struggling for so long.
Whether the change is good or bad, one thing is certain...there's no going back. Even if everything outside us returns to exactly how it was in the past, you've changed! Inside you have become stronger, you've grown.
When change happens, we need to create a new normal. We need to take baby steps each day getting to know our new lives, and our new selves. Change is scary and how well we cope boils down to our attitude. It's easier to cope when we look for the joy in each day.
Keeping a daily joy list is a fantastic way to notice all the little and big things in life to be joyful about.
Noticing the joy, even if it's as simple as the perfect cup of tea, gradually helps to create a new normal after change.
