Be kind to yourself!

I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination. ~ Jimmy Dean

For better and for worse, change happens. In fact, one of the certainties in life is that change will occur. So how do we manage the inevitable stress that comes with change?

First, we need to learn to sail with the winds of certain change, not against them. Whether we are experiencing a change in career, position, school, or family, the goal should be to adjust our sails for the smoothest journey possible. Secondly, we need to be flexible and nimble; our families and others are watching, after all. They are taking their cues from us as we sail toward a common destination. Thirdly, and possibly the most difficult, be kind to yourself. Simply allow yourself to trust the process of any big changes in direction.

Here’s to smooth sailing the rest of the year!
