Nothing ever stays the same, that is the only thing we can be sure of. Even the highest mountain is constantly changing. Everything is created or born, has it’s lifespan and then crumbles and dies, the greatest and the smallest alike. Knowing this can make a person terrified and paralyzed and hanging on to the old for dear life, so how can I say that transformation is actually a blessing?

What if nothing changed?

If everything would stay the same, we would never be able to get anywhere or change our circumstances, wether they are good or bad. Sure, if you are rich and happy that might sound great, but would it not get very boring to know that this is all you will ever have? Nothing to strive for and nothing to learn would be horrible, even in the lap of luxury! And if your circumstances were not as good, what would you do if you knew it would not, could not, change? Would you not just give up if you knew that nothing you do can get you out of the place you are in?

Taking a leap

There is nothing more exhilarating and exciting than to take a leap into the unknown to see if maybe you can change your situation. Wether it works out well or not, at least you learn something and you grow and change and you get stronger. Sometimes we have a tendency to start something and if it doesn’t work immediately, we give up. That is not change! That is reverting to our old beliefs about ourselves! If we take a leap, we have to know that working for what we want and not giving up is essential, and when we look back at what we have accomplished we will see how much we have grown.

Growing older

I certainly know that thinking of our physical changes; wrinkles, aches and pains and  all that, is not very pleasant, but hanging on to what we used to be able to do or how we used to look does not help us feel better, does it? Accepting change and embracing transformation is all we can do to stay happy. Learning new things and accepting what is, is also change and gives us the wonderful blessing of internal change. Growing older also means we get wiser and more confident and we usually learn not to take ourselves and things that happen so seriously. We might even learn to laugh at ourselves and some of the things we got upset about when we were younger now seem silly and insignificant. How liberating!

The blessed journey

A very comforting thought when things are bad comes from the Bible: “this too, shall pass” and it goes for the bad as well as the good, but I personaly think it is best to think of when things are not the way I would like them to be. Working and striving for change and transformation is really all we have and in that strive lies most of what makes us happy and content, because most often happiness is in the journey, not in the goal.

  1. Hey Kristina… Thanks for your great post. Like you, I always try to embrace transformation in all aspects of life…Looking forward to your future posts. Keep up the good work. Bet wishes- Jeremy

    1. Hi Jeremy and thanks! It is not always easy to see the benefits of transformation but in a way, it is all we have so embracing it is crucial or we will become very narrow minded and change will happen anyway. Namaste, Kristina

  2. Hi Kristina, I agree that change is very important in life. Without change it is easy to get stuck in a routine and become complacent in certain areas of your life. Love the quote from the bible also!

    1. Hi Jay! Glad you liked it and you are so right, change is necessary and quite unavoidable. I think the bible has a lot to teach us, and there are lots of wonderful quotes that we often do not think of that we use, or how very profound they are.
      Blessings, Kristina

    1. Hi Pedro and thank you! So glad you liked the post! As change is unavoidable we need to embrace it instead of fighting it. Regards, Kristina

  3. Hello Kristina,

    What a wonderful article and an empowering message. Also, I love that bible quote you shared. It is short short, but yet so wise. I imagine an old man with a long white beard saying it in a deep, low voice, haha. Words of truth are so profound. All the best 🙂

    1. Hi Lyra! Thank you so much, I am so glad you liked it and yes, that quote is so comforting in so many situations. Love the thought of the old man 😀 All the best to you too! Kristina
