    Scared of Change?

    Submitted by Irene Javors, LMHC

    "The unknown takes us out of our comfort zone."

    From What About The Big Stuff?, Richard Carlson, Ph.D. Hyperion, 2002, p.20.

    Whatever change that either happens to us or we willingly undertake always has an element of fear. We love our habits of being. Even taking a shower at a different time of the day has the potential of upsetting our routinized life. Change wakes us up to living in the fullness of the moment. Staying mindful of how we enslave ourselves to old ways of being and doing is the challenge. Nothing stands still, no matter how we delude ourselves into thinking that we have the power to make it otherwise.
