30 September: Everything changes in nature. Every day the world looks different. In what way do I cope with change?

Well that figures. Today’s card is the ten of swords from the Rider waite!( I've deliberately chosen the picture of the Anna K tarot because that one emphasizes that you can get up again)
It is easy to answer this one: I don't cope well with change. I've had some major changes in my life and the last one was the most traumatic and I didn't cope well. It has cost me several years to finally get a grip on my life again and to learn to accept life as it is. Looking back it was the most intense painful period of my life, but this experience has changed me incredible. I've learned to shed my victimizing thoughts, bit by bit. And it can be life changing to replace them with empowering ones. That brings me to my solution on how to cope with change. you have to change with it. It’s like the strength of bamboo that waves in the wind and thus does not break. Nothing and nobody ever stays the same. Having that said doesn't mean I am able to do that every time when change comes by. A little wavy change I can manage. I think we all can. It’s those dreadful storms that can blast the feet from under us. And that can shake us to the core. We tend to put our heels in the sand and stiffen up inside and out. A deep NO! rumbles in our guts. That’s just life. But whenever I’m hit again by my crumbling thoughts in my back I know in the end I can get up again.
Happily I am in calmer waters now. But I know change is on its way. I only can hope I'm better equipped than the last time.
“This too shall pass” is a saying I've read somewhere and is really speaking to me
