Change equals Trust minus Fear

Change.  It is always a delicate subject.  One that festers for days, months, years sometimes until it fully manifests.  And, often times, change really only happens when placed upon us.  I had a good friend say to me once, “People only change when they have to.”  I have found this to be true as most of the big shifts I’ve made in my life have come when change is beyond my control, or when my spirit voice starts yelling at me to the point where I have no choice but to listen and abide.

I’m blessed to be experiencing my second pregnancy right now.   Talk about change being placed upon me… Here I am with 3 year-old and a 6-month growing belly, knowing my life is on the brink of serious change, and I’m scared.  I’m scared I won’t be able to love both my children with equal amounts of energy and love that they both deserve.  I’m scared I won’t be able to provide.  I’m scared I won’t be able to dedicate time to both my family and to my passions like teaching yoga.Change Fear Trust

Fear.  It is so natural and it seems to go hand in hand with change.   And the only way I have learned to combat the fear is to find TRUST.  My intention since the moment I found out I was pregnant again was to trust.  I am trusting that everything will evolve as it is meant to.  I am trusting that my pregnancy and my baby are healthy.  I am trusting that the changes occurring in my life are for the best and that they will only force me to grow and learn more about who I am.  I am trusting that if I take a leap of faith, there will be a net to catch me if I fall.

The next time you feel scared in the eyes of change, tell yourself to TRUST.  Get still, feel the moment at hand, feel a slower breath, and allow yourself to trust.  Everything will work out exactly the way it is supposed to.  Surrender to the unknown.  And let yourself be fearless in the eyes of change.

Namaste.
