1. There’s no such thing as not being a creative person. All human beings are.
If you can build a world of your own, with all those expectations, ideals, fantasies, dreams, goals, plans, regrets, memories, opinions, values, visions, questions and answers, then you can also build anything else. You just haven’t decided to bring it to the physical world yet.

2. I can never be bored as in each moment I discover something new about myself, a deeper layer of my own universe. And to find another person that interesting, who has such deep content, would be an awfully big adventure.

3. We’re all secretly searching for meaning, seeking it in every outer source, until one day we realize it’s always been right in front of our eyes – on the inside.

4. Some things just sound good. Traveling the world can make you the loneliest person, money can make you lose your soul, being brave, confident and admired as the person you look up to may turn your life into a constant battle with yourself. Keep that in mind.

5. The deepest sorrow can become your most valuable lesson and the best thing that has ever happened to you. Just give it a chance.

6. I should never say never, I know. But there’s something I’m sure about – there’s never going to be a day in my life when I’ll have nothing to write about.

7. Having a weakness and the chance to do something about it and improve yourself is another thing that gives our lives a meaning and makes us feel like we’re doing something.

8. Stop asking for opinion. Whatever they tell you and however good and objective they’re trying to be, what they say has nothing to do with your own world and who you are.
The only opinion that matters is yours. So start asking yourself about all the stuff you need and try to be as honest as you can.

9. It doesn’t matter where you come from. But lately, I’ve come up to the conclusion that it also doesn’t matter where you go. Too many people focus on these two destinations and ignore the only one that’s essential – where you are. So look around, be awake and feel alive.

10. You may say that you don’t like change and are not really good at it, but let me tell you a secret – you already changed a few times since the beginning of this sentence. As in every moment we are different from who we were in the previous one. And it’s neither good, nor bad. It’s just life.

9 Ways to Handle Change in Your Life [Infographic] 3

9 Ways to Handle Change in Your Life [Infographic]

When a big change happens in your life, it doesn’t have to be a negative change to have a huge impact on you.

Change causes uncertainty and our brains and bodies react to uncertainty by trying to protect us with the release of fight or flight chemicals and hormones.

The downside to this is that living with these for an extended time results in elevated heart rate and affects your digestion, immune systems and blood flow.

But there are ways you can regain control over your life even in the midst of big changes.

The first is to take a step back and reflect on what’s actually happening and what your involvement is, which will help you to understand and find perspective on the situation. Hopefully, this will enable you to find the opportunities that every change in your life brings, rather than obsessing over any short-term negative impacts.

It may also help you to allow yourself a transition period where you adjust to the changes. But with a firm deadline by which you expect to have moved on and settled into the new routine. Even if it doesn’t quite work out that way, it will still push you towards visualizing the end of the uncertainty, which will prepare you to make it happen sooner rather than later.

On a more basic level, you need to remember to look after yourself during this time of change and the related stresses.

It can be too easy to fall into bad habits like neglecting your own simple needs, like a good night’s sleep and staying active and eating right when you are going through something like this. Having a day in your pajamas eating ice cream out of the tub is fine. But your body needs sleep, exercise and nutrition to keep you healthy.

Routine can be a comfort when it feels like everything in your life is changing.

So try and stick to some simple ones like walking your dog every morning or going to a regular gym class to give your life some stability and consistency.

You also need the help and support of those around you. And having a strong support network is crucial when it comes to coping with big changes in your life. This means family and friends, but you could also seek out people going through similar experiences by looking online. There may well be communities who you can talk to and get helpful tips from.

Most importantly of all, you need to be aware of when you need more than just the love and support of other people to help you cope with stress and uncertainty. If you start to feel like your mental health is really suffering, or you have been feeling the symptoms of stress for more than a couple of months, you need to go and talk to a health professional to get the help you need to bounce back.
