The word change has been on my mind a lot lately. What changes and what stays the same? Change makes things exciting and different and new. Change is the process of becoming different as said by Wikipedia. Is change difficult or simple? What do you decide to change and keep the same and when do you make that decision?
I am coming to understand that we change what we want to when we want to. Sometimes we make the change before we are ready and once the excitement wears off, we feel the process of becoming different. The difficulty of the change depends on how long something has been a certain way and how much we appreciate change. It could be fate that allows us to make decisions that lead us to the change and it is our responsibility to figure out how to adapt.
Some people are scared of change and others need change to feel alive and vibrant. Do you know where you stand on this continuum?
When something happens to our bodies, we change and adapt holding patterns so that we are not in pain. Through this change, our very intelligent body navigates it's way to homeostasis so that our eyes find the horizon and we are as far away from pain as possible. If we hold these new patterns, we engage muscles that are too weak to hold our bodies in this new way for an extended period of time.
Whenever there is an issue in the body, it is so important to treat it sooner than later. This way, we can return to our dynamic, buoyant structure and happily live pain-free.
