The autumn season continues to bring about change and renewal, as temperatures begin to cool, leaves transition into various foliage, and then eventually a winter frost will welcome us. Autumn reminds us that the winter season is coming and that we must embrace the oncoming change. Though change can be nerve-wracking, it is also inevitable and allows us to grow and reconnect.
Autumn is the season of change. Oftentimes, people might start thinking about the seasons of their career paths, new adventures to embark on, or changes that you’re currently experiencing throughout life. Not only does the weather or the way we dress change – but there’s also changes in how we feel.
“Change is the only constant in life” — Heraclitus
Change is part of life. Its process might be painful and scary, but to change for the better is greater than staying stagnant in a place where you are not learning and growing. We are all in a process of becoming better versions of ourselves and any goals that we set for the upcoming new year will make the journey worthwhile.
There’s a good chance that the feeling of uncertainty might begin to creep in as you might not know what’s going to happen next or what you’ll be doing in the next few months. Our brains register the feeling of uncertainty the same way it registers errors. As humans, we want to solve it right away so that we feel comfortable again.
However, one of the most important things about embracing change is the ability to accept that we might not have everything under control. And that’s OK. By welcoming change with an open mind, we can free ourselves from any restraints and continue to grow as individuals…which will have a positive effect on our mood and overall success in life.
Autumn also represents new beginnings, which means shedding off bad habits, bad relationships, bad memories, and anything hindering you from moving forward. This is a great time to start fresh with feelings of hope, optimism, inspiration, motivation, and change. Here are a few tips that you can use to guide you towards accepting change in your life.
First, you must have a growth mindset. This will help you change the way you see life such as embracing challenges as opportunities instead of obstacles and mistakes turning into lessons learned that are valuable for a lifetime.
Next, write down your personal list of changes. This can include major milestones, successes, and challenges – which can give you insight into the amount of growth you’ve already experienced throughout the years. By going through this list carefully, it not only reminds you of how far you’ve come but also encourages the practice of gratitude and an appreciation towards life.
Third step is to make a mental and physical connection with changes. Change comes only when we step out of our comfort zone. With each minor or major change, take a moment to bring your awareness to the change you just experienced: how are you feeling emotionally? Relieved, Accomplished, Giddy? How does your body feel? More relaxed, Lighter, More Energetic? When we acknowledge changes then we are more apt to make more changes going forward.
Be sure to set goals that are actionable and will hold you accountable. The feeling of empowerment puts you in a place of positive energy and confidence instead of fear and self-doubt. Focus on adding energy in areas that establish powerful change instead.
