How to effectively deal with forced changes - Purpose
Without Counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established (Proverbs 15:22 KJV - 1997)
To find peace in our lives when we are going through a crises or experiencing forced change in our daily relationships it is important to focus on the things we can change and find the right strategy for doing so. Before the current global health crises became a reality, some were dreaming of potential opportunities and had visions of doing something different with their life based on what they thought their life purpose was. In a few cases (including mine) we might have held back on fully embracing these dreams for many reasons. As we use this time to pause, reflect and meditate on the opportunities that lie ahead we must fully embrace the acronym of P.E.A.C.E - Purpose, Empowerment, Action, Care and emotional Energy to effectively deal with change.
Purpose is something we all have and is uniquely and intricately woven into our DNA. It is the spirit in which we undertake tasks, live our lives and conduct our relationships; it is who we were divinely created to be. Whether you are on the journey of discovering your purpose or already living it out loud, we can use this opportunity to redesign our lives the way we choose to live it, without compromise. When we fight against who we are, walk in the opposite direction of what we know to be right or keep putting off starting our dreams and goals for fear of failure, finance or other reasons; forced and unexpected changes are harder to overcome. Being resistant to change, ignoring or denying change can be equally damaging.
When we embrace the fact that life has changed as we know it and decide not to fit into someone else’s mold of who they think we are (or could be), we leave room for our new, content (with self and life) and purposeful identity to emerge. We are all created beings with creative minds and a great deal of potential yet to be realised, irrespective of our age, ethnicity, financial or personal circumstances. Change is therefore a part of growth, life and purpose. Discovering and living life on purpose is priceless!
