The Magic of Dancing With Change

I chose this title because I was looking for something to suggest that we deal with change bit by bit, always running back to safety when we need to.  To run head on at the brick wall that we think we must break down will not have a good result. To make any change it is good to be sure that we want that change.  Some changes come at us willy nilly and we have to accept them.  Those are seldom changes that we went out to get.  Consider this:   The new thing is strange, unknown, not comfortable, therefore we resist it.  But dance with it, visualize it, talk about it, ask questions about what it is and what is involved in that change.  Just opening the door to a change can gave magical results.  Our inner self will start to accept the need or desirability of the change.  The creative ideas about that change will happen.  Then the change itself starts to evolve.  Just from that first tentative waltz. Of course change is still loss, it is still hard.  Dan and Chip Heath wrote a good book about how to be effective in making changes and how to maintain that change once you make it.  Other people have also written, and even preached, about how to change.  All I am suggesting to you wise magicians is that you play pee-a-boo, dance with, joke around with and get to know and understand the change you might take on.  There is magic in approaching things lightly, and being able to retreat from them.  It doesn't mean you are avoiding change.  It doesn't mean you are afraid of commitment.
It just means that you are a wise magician and you know that it is good to live with as much joy, even when making changes, as you can bring to your life.  May the spark be with you.
