Yesterday, I happened to tune into the last few minutes of a NatGeo program on animals living on the African Plains. The narrator was talking about survival. He said:

It isn’t the fastest or the smartest that survive;

it’s those who can adapt to change who survive.

Holy smokolas!

I was so happy and excited to hear that!

It means I don’t have to worry about bigger, better, smarter, faster, or stronger than “my competition”. All I have to do is to figure out how to make the best of change. Instead of being bowled over, crushed and flattened by change, all I need to do is to ask myself: what can I do to use this to my advantage? How can this change benefit me?

WooHoo!

Your homework today is to look at your situation and note where you can be more adaptable and flexible. In what areas of your life do you need to be more accepting of change?

When change shows up, I know it can be scary and overwhelming. Change is uncomfortable. But the more you accept the fact that change is going on all the time, the more you’ll free yourself to think creatively. The more you do that, the more you’ll see ways that change can help you.

How do you get comfortable with, and even embrace, change?

One step at a time!

What if the steps are too big and overwhelming, what do you do then?

You break them into small parts and little pieces. Break those into tiny bits. Keep breaking things down smaller and smaller until you get to the teensy jots and specks that are just the right size for you.

Then do them!

You can do it, I know you can!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
