We live in an age of change. Everything is always changing: technology, dietary recommendations, parenting tips, financial systems and so much more.
And for the most part, these kinds of changes are outside of our control. We bystanders. Onlookers. Trying to stay afloat. And I think knowing this, even sub consciously, leads us to shut down areas of our personal world. We want to be able to say ‘no’ to new ideas or systems that keep messing with our lives and our ways.
But here’s the risk, we stop changing. We stop exploring and risking and daring.
We set up a fear of change that contains our lives and limits our future.
Instead the word ‘openness’ offers another approach. Not change for the sake of change. Not change for the sake of acceptance or political correctness or getting ahead.
But an open stance.
A way of standing and looking at the world that says,
”I am ready for you and whatever you have to teach me. No matter what today brings, I have learned enough to be ready and waiting.”
