By Lisa Cypers Kamen, Harvesting Happiness


One of the best things about life is that it is ever changing, ever evolving and ever challenging.  It is through the changes, evolutions and challenges that we grow and hopefully take the steps to creating a better life for oursleves. This can be a daunting task for some as change can be frightening, overwhelming and stop us dead in our tracks.


How do we use our own personal happiness to help us navigate change.  One of the best ways I have found is to take a moment amidst the changes to try to find the good in those changes.  What initially appears like a change for the worse can be reframed in your mind as a change for the better. Once you start appreciating the change, you can then find the opportunity for growth and prosperity that is hiding under the fear.


Taking the time to really examine the changes in your life will give you the power to create from that which was at first frustrating.  Often times, change when it is forced upon us through life’s circumstances can be a door or a gateway to creating new things in our lives that will ultimately increase our overall level of happiness and satisfaction.  So the next time life throws you a curve ball, stop for a moment, look for the doors that are opening and hit that curve ball right out of the park!
