on change.

You will be a different person by the time you will have finished reading this short post.

Whether you like it or not, you will have changed. Your body will change on a cellular level and your mind will also encounter new pieces of information to process.

As Bonnie Garmus beautifully wrote this in her ‘Lessons in Chemistry’- “Courage is the root of change—and change is what we’re chemically designed to do.

I love the connection courage – change- chemistry.

We all change. Everything and everybody changes. Our bodies change as they move through life journey heading to our desitinations.

Our minds change experiencing life with its, overwhelming at times, ocean of events, emotions, challenges and gifts.

We all look at change and have feelings- we embrace it, we fear it, we love it, we hate it. And somehow, secretly or not, we often WANT change.

We want to change and have courage to do things we are scared to do.

We want to change and be able to do all the things we want to do.

We want to change and live the life we want….

It’s human, natural and yet, often so scary.

I know. I also have a relationship with change. When I look back I realise how much I have changed. There have been changes I had no control over and had to process and accept them. And there have been many changes that I have created, nurtured and lived through.

None of them have been easy. All of them have been marred with sweat, failure, struggle, disappointment and sadness. Like Yours, right?

And all of them have led me to the place I am in today, to me of today, making me who I am and how I show up in life. Also here, for you.

And today I am grateful for all of them. They give me courage and confidence that I will be able to create and navigate more changes.

So today, I am encouraging you to pause and reflect on the changes you have experienced.

How do you feel about them?

How have they become gifts in your life?

and how can they help you acknowledge the courage within you to navigate the changes to come?

And I would like you to note one thing:

whenever you crave change and / or face change and you get butterflies in your stomach…


“Courage is the root of change—and change is what we’re chemically designed to do.”

Much courage.

Much love,
