I’ve blogged a little about the life change I’m going through at that the moment here, so having stumbled upon this piece – 10 Ways You Can Embrace Change - from Real Simple* on CNN site, there were a few things that really resonated with me:

(*a mag I’m not particularly familiar with!)

Seek out new perspectives. Zen practitioners cultivate the "don't know" mind; they work to assume they don't know anything and in that way see the world fresh. This is a great way to approach change -- as an opportunity to start anew, to consider all possibilities.

Try something new and slightly scary. Why? Because now is the time to explore what it is that you really like. Catch yourself off-guard and see what happens.

Be skeptical of common wisdom. It's dangerous to live in the aggregate

Shed your old skin. Discard physical clutter, tired ideas, old routines. Seeing things through another's eyes can help.

A few things to ponder there.

How do you deal with change?
