A note on… Resisting Change

There’s been a lot of change happening lately. Relationships, friendships, careers — you name it.

A little food for thought this morning…

I don’t know about you guys, but to put it simply: There’s been a lot happening lately. Just, like, a lot happening. You know? Relationships, friendships, careers — you name it. Lots of change.

Although this tends to be the norm with the turn of the seasons, no?

I read this quote the other day and I’ve been thinking about it non-stop/talking about it a lot in my SoulCycle classes as of late… That is to say:

We tend to resist change when we focus on what we have to give up rather than what we have to gain. 

Such a simple concept, really. Right?

This goes in all facets of life — exercise (some days, working out sucks) diet and weight loss (giving up food), relationships (the comfort of familiarity) and so on… And really, all it takes is a little shift in perspective. To re-focus on the gain.

A new season is a great excuse to start fresh with a clean slate — Monday morning especially — so here’s to saying a few overdue goodbye’s in order to bring on a handful of beautiful hello’s. 

Have a great week!
