Super Angie...Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer

 Can we talk candidly for a moment?  Who here loves changes? You just LOVE IT when FB changes something and you have to relearn it all. You just LOVE IT when your phone updates and bam! Its like day one again and you have no idea how to get to your apps? You just LOVE IT when your favorite restaurant changes the menu...oh great. Where is my old stand by comfort dish?

If you found any of the above statements to be irritating, make you nervous, dig up bad memories of last week's FB update (grin), then LET'S SIT DOWN AND TALK!

Let's have a TEA party. 

CHANGE HAPPENS. Let's all just agree on that. And if things didn't change, there would be no butterflies. Beautiful, right?  There wouldn't be Spring flowers. There wouldn't be Caramel Apple Cider and pumpkins in the fall. Did you learn and grow when FB did it's last update? YES you did.  Have you gradually been able to accept the changes with out the daily I HATE THIS rants? Probably!
Change can be really good!

 I recently had the chance to listen to Dr. Casey Reason and read his book.  He illustrated Change really well.  When someone who was not born into the Internet Age (me! I was born in 1975), is faced with a technology change, we freak out. We rant. We moan about it. BUT when someone who was born into this age (1994 and later), they LOVE the challenges that technological changes bring. "Whoa! Cool!" "Oh fun! Something new to learn". "I wonder what this does". 

Notice the attitude difference?

Okay, let's have that TEA PARTY NOW!
T:  Take time!  Change requires patience and time. Change in your business. Change in your fitness level. Change in eating. Change in parenting.  Change takes TIME.  If you try to rush it, you will only frustrate yourself. Remember, CHANGE MUST HAPPEN but you can take time to get to understand it better and make it a part of your daily routine.

E: Enjoy the journey.  Since we've established that there is no way to avoid change, you might as well enjoy it, right?  Make up your mind to ENJOY THE CHANGE.

A: Always be AWESOME.  Don't let change get you down.  Wake up remembering, it's your duty to be awesome. :)  Start a gratitude Journal and write down, daily, 5 AWESOME things that are going on in your life.  Focus on the Awesome. Focus on being AWESOME.

Let's talk about this. I'd love to hear from you. Find me on FB https://www.facebook.com/superangielockets  I'd would love to continue this chat.... please pass me a caramel apple spice!
