These affirmative thoughts are in honor of the kinds of changes that we absolutely must initiate and follow because they are what’s best for us. When change is in the air, especially when it comes to changing priorities for the sake of peace, let yourself flow into a new season of life with enthusiasm and curiosity.
You are never too lost, too old, too good, or too anything to open your eyes as if for the first time.
I’ll begin by sharing a piece of my puzzle called Change that’s being implemented this week: I will be posting 3 times per week here on the blog, rather than 4 times (previously, every weekday for the past three years).
This change comes with enthusiasm:
- My sanity is thanking me for the space.
- My eyes are thanking me for the time away from the screen.
- My creativity is thanking me for the replenishment.
I think you’ll appreciate this change too: it comes in the wake of some exciting projects worthy of my devoted attention, things I’m working on for all of us. Yes, more books are part of that!
I also stopped sending Good News Letters as of this month (I can do anything, but I cannot do everything), so if you were receiving those, make sure you sign up for my Love Letters instead: every few weeks or so, I send short, personal, uplifting messages to keep us connected to life’s abundant Love, with a capital L.Change is not meant to be easy, but it is sometimes necessary for simplicity. tell a friend
If change is in the air for you, too, but fear is clouding your vision, see with your heart instead. I have a few heartfelt affirmations to help you release what’s blocking what’s best for you (which might even be best for those around you).
When Change Is in the Air: Affirmations to Encourage Enthusiasm, Curiosity & Trust
1. It’s fun when fear turns into love.
As I start pondering a new way to live, I open myself to “signs” that feel like more than coincidences: little notes from the universe pointing me down the path. I listen with love instead of fear. I focus on the loving nature and greater purpose for doing what I must do.
2. I am grateful and excited, all at once.
My gratitude and enthusiasm are not mutually exclusive. I adopt a grateful spirit for what has been and still is here if it has served my growth, expansion, clarity, and self-understanding. I adopt an enthusiastic outlook for what has yet to be shown: this is how I grow, gracefully.Gratitude coupled with enthusiasm often feels like grace. tell a friend
3. I stop forcing and start receiving.
Even if I am waiting, I can wait with purpose. Even though I may not know, with full clarity, what my purpose is, I am willing to find out. Even though this season of my life is uncomfortable, I respect that every season serves a purpose.“When we do not grasp with our mind, we find a fresh way of being.” — Pema Chödrön tell a friend
4. My curiosity births joyful growth.
I open my heart so that I can feel my way through change with joy. I open my mind so that I can see what’s behind doors that once were not even known. I let curiosity lead the way. I let myself experience what it’s like to be a human, growing.Curiosity births joyful growth: the heart that's open to creative solutions sees more than the mind closed by what it thinks it already knows. tell a friend
5. I am trying trust instead.
The heart feels the truth before the head understands it. I am learning how to trust my “heart thoughts” instead.
