Before I even start this post, let me say, I actually love change! It’s inevitable whether you drive it or not.
Time passes, people change, circumstances change, the world changes, you change.
But sometimes just when you think things are going to be a certain way they no longer are! And it’s out of your control. There is nothing you can do about it. You have a choice – be negative and feel like a victim or find the positive and embrace it! I’m not saying it’s going to be easy. There are certainly situations where the challenges are going to be extreme, lots of downs before the ups outweigh them. But today I’m referring to the everyday things that we all have to deal with in some way, on some level.
Allow me to explain…to do this I’ll reveal the news I refer to in the title.
maa organics is moving! This wasn’t planned by us at all…we had planned to stay where we are for the next year and had actually agreed with our real estate agent that we would sign another 12 month lease on the house we are living in. We sat back thinking this is great, we’re here for at least another year, we can relax and get on with reaching our goals without the disruption that moving causes. Yay! But, for various reasons we hadn’t yet signed the lease, when an email comes through telling us that the owner can now only offer us a 6 month lease as he may need to move in…bugger, sh*t, no, what will we do?, yikes…just some of our initial reactions to this news. As you can imagine we didn’t really want the disruption that moving causes. We had a choice. We could sign a 6 month lease, bringing us up to Christmas week, or we could look for a new place now. You know what we chose.
And just like that life changes.
We started to look at the positive side of things. We took control of what we can change and we made a choice that works best for us. Moving now meant we had time to find a place before the end of our lease here and not be waiting to move, feeling in limbo, for the next 6 months. Once we made this choice the energy changed and ideas started flowing. What opportunities does this open up for us? What do we really desire now? Not in a year or two but now?! As is often the case these ideas and visions are born over our Friday night wine ritual.
Let the manifesting begin!
Imagine a house that allows us to set up the wellbeing studio of course! And that also gives us room to run small workshops and retreats. We have wooden floors, a cosy space for our books and coffee/wine time, more privacy from neighbors, a relaxing outdoor space. A home that feels more ‘us’. In a short time we looked at a property that really fit these desires and needs. And after a little negotiation we got it! I always say we’re so lucky and Andrew agrees, but also reminds me that we make this stuff happen. Put it out to the universe, visualise it, take action, be the person who is ‘lucky’. Now for the move…the next couple of weeks are going to be organising and packing while still working in the Crace wellbeing studio. A busy and exciting time. I’ll share all the details of the new wellbeing studio on Facebook and Instagram.
But in the meantime let’s recap what to do when unexpected change like this happens..
- Allow yourself to react in the moment. I think it’s important to feel what you feel and let it out, then let it go.
- Make a choice to take control of what you can.
- Look at how this change could be an opportunity for you.
- What do your really desire now?
- Visualise the outcome. How does it look and feel?
- Take action. Go out and make it happen.
