4 GREAT WAYS TO ADAPT TO THE SEASONS OF LIFE

How To Adapt To The Seasons Of Life – And Why It’s All In Your Hands

Learning to adapt to the seasons of life can be hard or easy. It all depends on you.

Your life is yours to own and control. There are things you can do to make sure you are in full control of your personal brand, life, and destiny.

Would you approach your life differently if your life was your brand?

At the moment, your life may be amazing, not so great, or just down right sucks.

Whichever phase you find yourself in, you are clearly experiencing one or more transitions.

The changes could be in any area of your life.

Where you live, your career, financial situation, relationships, spiritual life, health, marriage, or any other area.

During these phases of change, we must learn to adapt to the seasons of life.

 

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

 

What Are The Seasons Of Life?

4 GREAT WAYS TO ADAPT TO THE SEASONS OF LIFE CHANGES ABUSYBEESLIFE

Transformation is a natural part of life.

These seasons or cycles are natural and are necessary for personal growth. It is important to go through change, rather than wait for it to pass or hope to get over it.

You are changing because you become someone new, different, and hopefully better.

In order to adapt to the seasons of life, you need to understand that each cycle will come with different tasks, goals, and perspectives. Not only that but also the roadblocks that could be set in your path.

Either by yourself or others.

 

Is Fall The Season Of Change?

4 GREAT WAYS TO ADAPT TO THE SEASONS OF LIFE FALL CHANGES ABUSYBEESLIFE

Yes and no.

Fall is called often called the season of change because the leaves turn the most beautiful of reds, yellows, and browns. Your clothing changes, you start to wear layers; the air smells crisper and cleaner.

Mother Nature makes it clear that not everything stays the same forever. Change is good. Beautiful. Unavoidable. Necessary.

In life, all seasons are seasons of change and transitions, which is why it is important to adapt to the seasons of life.

Ever notice that Winter brings about a time of reflection and setting goals?

Spring brings about enlightenment, opportunities and stepping out of your comfort zone?

Summer for me brings about joy, freedom, traveling, and self-growth.

 

Seasons Don’t last Forever

4 GREAT WAYS TO ADAPT TO THE SEASONS OF LIFE SEASONS DONT LAST FOREVER ABUSYBEESLIFE

You can adapt to the seasons of life because you know they are natural and temporary.

It will be easier for you to pass through those hard phases in life. Those bad days that only gets worse, the uncertainties you may have about a situation. It is in this phase that you will learn a lot about resilience and persistence.

Emotional changes are the hardest.

You will also learn new things about your strength and yourself, which in turn will help you grow.

A new season will arrive leaving you a different person. When things go successfully, celebrate it and embrace the joy. Accept it with grace.

When things go other than expected, don’t wallow in self-pity. It will get you nowhere. Start looking for alternative options.

See it as a challenge, a way to learn how to do things differently. Most importantly, do not worry about the things you cannot control.

 

When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves. – Viktor E. Frankl 

 

Move forward and keep progressing, reflect on your growth and increase your productivity.

Life is sending new things your way, so be open to it.

Since the start of this year, you have gone through winter, spring, and summer. Fall is now here, so ask yourself, “How have I changed?”, “Have I been able to grow?”, “Am I meeting my goals and heading in the direction I want ?”

The answers to these questions will help you self-reflect.

Should there be anything you are not happy about or proud of, find ways to change them this season.

Be kind to yourself.

 

What Are The Different Stages Of Change?

4 GREAT WAYS TO ADAPT TO THE SEASONS OF LIFE WHAT ARE THE STAGES

  • Denial

  • Anger

  • Dejection

  • Acceptance

  • Learning

 

The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.  – Nathaniel Branden 

 

4 Straightforward Ways To Adapt To The Seasons Of Life

4 GREAT WAYS TO ADAPT TO THE SEASONS OF LIFE KNOWING HOW TO ADAPT

1. Change Your Attitude

Change your attitude about something you currently don’t like.

This can be about something in your career, relationships, self-perception.

It is not going to change itself so you need to change your attitude towards whatever it is you don’t like.

Everything happens for a reason, and there is always a lesson to be learned.

 

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Maya AngelouClick To Tweet

 

2. Gain Perspective

Change forces us to examine our lives,to pause and gain perspective.

Life is filled with many gains, changes, shifts, losses, and transitions.

They may have a huge impact or none at all. You are adaptable.

 

3. Be Flexible

Nothing is set in stone. Not everything lasts forever. Love, friendships, marriage, finances.

These can all change at any point in time. For better or for worse.

Appreciate what you have when you have it. You never know, a new promise of forever might come your way.

 

4. Be Your Own Best Friend

You may think you have that one friend, partner, or family member that you can rely on no matter what.

That is great, fantastic, and is a safety net. However, people are capable of letting you down.

Take responsibility for how you deal with changes. Rely on yourself.

You control your behavior, your decisions, your actions.

 

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. – George Bernard Shaw

 

Change is constant, so we usually don’t notice the expected changes.

The unexpected changes are what catches us off-guard. If you are lucky enough to have a good support system like friends and family around you, you may not have to deal with overwhelming changes on your own.

You also have the option of support groups, life coaches, or a therapist.

Reach out and ask for help if it feels like it is too much to handle on your own.

Like the seasons, keep growing, blooming, and living.

This post came right on time!!!
I’m currently still in the dejection phase and as stupid as it sounds I’ve been talking to myself to try and get out of it- I guess this comes with being my own best friend!
I honestly couldn’t be more thankful for this post right now- thank you SO much for sharing!

Hi, I am so glad that this came to you at the very time you needed it. I am so glad you could resonate with it. I say, you have to be your own best friend as people will always disappoint and only you control your happiness and being the best person you can be.
No matter what you are going through, see it as a learning phase and a challenge which you will definitely accomplish and come out a winner. xoxo 🙂

This was such a great read at the perfect time! My husband just started a full time MBA program and it’s been pretty difficult to adjust to never seeing him or spending time with him. We sold our home, moved to a new city, and he started school and they were all rapid changes. Thanks for sharing this advice!

I try to remember that the seasons don’t last forever. The seasons of my life sometimes correspond with the actual seasons and other times they correspond with what is happening in my life. Either way, it is great to remember that change and evolution is natural.

As it has always been said, “The only thing constant in the world is change.” So true. However, I tend to question the reason for the change. Some changes would not be for the benefit of the greater good, and those changes are the ones I refuse to follow.

I couldn’t have said this any better! Being flexible for change and self reflection are very important. It helps you to stay realistic. The part about friends is so true! Not everyone can be trusted or has the same vision so it is best to not depend on others. You are responsible for your own succes story!

The one thing that I have found the most true in all my life is that the ability to be flexible is a necessary skill if you want to succeed in it. You have to be ready to be adaptable to the changes that come around you. And you have to roll with it and be ready for what may come your way next. Planning is important. But being prepared for what you cannot plan for is even more important. It frequently determines success and failure.

This post is so inspirational, Sheri. I believe change is the only constant in life, cliche I know, but a fact as well. We can evolve in our lives when we take it as seasons that come and go and learn to adapt our attitude towards it accordingly.

When I look back, there are three or four seasons of my life where I’ve made dramatic changes. The moments when I woke up and thought “I’ve had it, I’m not living like this anymore” Certainly, the changes required weren’t easy, but they were always so very worth it. x

What a fantastic post its so inspirational. I totally believe that one should embrace change and adapt accordingly. Nothing stays the same and rather than try and reciprocate what you have had that’s good one should see good things in new ventures and new opportunities. Embrace change and it will embrace you.

The change was so pronouncing that I couldnt keep up with it…a very hard begining of something very beautiful!

These are great tips. I actually agree with everything you said. Having a negative attitude on something just isn’t good for you so you must change it if it greatly affects you. And yes, you must love yourself over anyone. At the end of the day, you only have you, so don’t lose yourself while trying to keep others. 🙂
