Change, everyone has something to say about change.  We change our hair, our clothes, our underwear, sometimes several times a day if you are 4.  We get change at the store.  Change is everywhere.

The world is in this cosmic period of change.  It is like we are all specs of dust on a rug and someone shook the rug out.  They are done shaking the rug, and now all of us specs of dust are settling back down.  The thing is, when we settle back down, we won't be in the same place we were when we started.

When there is massive cosmic change going on, it is an opportunity to reinvent yourself.  To be someone entirely different than you were before.  To embrace that change as an opportunity.  Be open to the potential of what could happen for you.

The reality of life is that nothing in life is constant.  We are all changing.  The only thing that is constant is change.  Change is the stable thing in our worlds.  To live with change and not be afraid of it, well that is the challenge now isn't it.

When I was fresh out of college, my father told me to feel the fear and do it anyway.  That it is ok to feel the fear, but do not let the fear make the decision for you.  You make the decision for you.  

A very dear friend of mine is in a very bad place right now.  She is faced with making a crossroads decision.  The kind that no matter what you choose, it will change your life unalterable forever.  She had made her decision, but wisely wanted to sit with it for a while, because she was worried she was making the decision out of fear.  It was incredibly wise of her to recognize fear as part of her decision process.

We can not stop change.  Change is a part of our beings.  What we can control is how much power we give to fear.  What did you do today that was fearless?
