It has been a few weeks since I lasted posted. I left off with “How do you respond to change?” I offered some suggestions. Part of being calm and steady at the helm requires us to look at our habits. Our habits play a significant role in how we respond.
I mentioned in my last post MMS( Makes Me Smile) that I easily went from a three to ten emotionally in response to change. Why? Now when I look back it was a pattern that existed in my family. It was how issues were handled. Look back into your past and look at the habit of response in your family. Were they calm? Were they impulsive? This is another way, as mature adults, we can learn to embrace change as an opportunity.
In the next post we will look at those habits in more detail and look at alternative responses.
