Hug the Cactus: Embracing Change with Krista & Alex

Embracing change. It can hurt.

It can be awkward. And it often doesn’t come naturally, but embracing the prickly reality of change is the best tactic when dealing with a change we can’t avoid.

This week Alex and Krista talk about facing change. In so many ways we know that change is inevitable, and yet we try to avoid it. We fight against it. But what’s the point of fighting it if we know it’s coming?

Let’s embrace it!

This can feel like hugging a cactus.

Why would we want to embrace something so difficult? Because it’s better to accept it and move forward, than resist the inevitable. Living with a lens of opportunity gives change a new purpose. It means we can grow! With God’s help we can hug that cactus!

Don’t miss the conversation between Alex and Krista as they talk about how they are facing changes today.
