Who can argue against the fact that we live in a world where change happens very frequently and often very quickly?
Even though we would like to think we live in a stable environment, the reality is that we live in a society where the uncertainty of the future is predominant.
The priorities in our lives and our expectations change as time progresses, sometimes these change very quickly.
Goals are good to have and can be helpful when dealing with change. We should feel no condemnation when we have to change, or modify, or even replace our goals with new goals, if they are not achieved on time.
When you are experiencing more (or more intense) change than normal, it is important to maintain your vital personal relationships. Yes, even these relationships change over time, however, working at maintaining your central relationships will help you deal with times of change and transition. Our core relationships are those with Jesus, your spouse, and your family.
Financial realities are REAL! Do NOT ignore them. Adapt and adjust to your new financial realities as they arise.
Adapt, and try to learn and grow with every change.
Don’t be afraid of going backwards or restarting if necessary.
Maintain a positive outlook on life. Joy and happiness in the midst of change are OK.
