We are continually faced with changes that we often view as problems; sometimes because they actually are issues that have arisen. But often we define changes as problems just because they are changes and we don’t like change.
When faced with either an actual problem or just a change, usually our first response is to ignore it, hoping it will disappear. However, it is important to accept that these situations are commonplace, are to be expected. Therefore, we should accept them as a routine part of our lives. By doing so, we are able to see the problem or change as an opportunity to expand our world; to view life from a slightly different angle, to alter our perceptions – in general, to learn.
So, use each change or problem as an expected experience that you use to your best advantage by acknowledging it and using it as an opportunity to learn.
