What Children Can Teach Us About Change
As adults, we can learn a lot about change from our children. How are they able to let things go and move on so easily?
Children are fully in the present moment. They don’t sit around dwelling on the past or imagining how much worse a situation could be. They deal with whatever comes their way, right then and there, and then they move on.
As adults, we’re filled with negative expectations. We tend to think that life is against us, or that things will never get better, but in reality, none of us knows what’s going to happen in the next half hour.
People say you can’t go back. But, in this case, you can. Faced with your next big change, stay focused on the here and now, access your feelings in the present moment and experience change as a kid again. You'll thank yourself.
