Change can be exhilarating. It may lift you out of a rut. You should break out of your comfort zone and try new things. Change also enables progress. You know that you need to be flexible in case you want to be successful.
Change makes you more resilient. You'll discover your strengths and build your confidence. You will realize that you are capable of more than you thought.
You advance in your career. When you get laid off, you'll have more time to search for your next position. You may change fields or take on more responsibility. You may start your own business or go back to school.
You can develop strong and supportive relationships. Marriages and friendships sometimes end. You are still capable of loving and being loved. You make new connections based on who you are now instead of who you were used to be.
You do age gracefully. You adapt your diet and workouts to suit your current condition. You style your hair to show off your gray strands. You appreciate gaining wisdom and patience rather than fretting about a few wrinkles.
You pursue your goals. When you complete one project, you plan your next adventure.
You turn fear into excitement. You remember that moving forward is more productive than trying to protect the status quo. You choose words that help you, yourself, to think positive. You focus on what you can do instead of worrying about events beyond your control.
