“Maya Angelou said, ‘If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.'”
Lori Adams-Brown learned first-hand the difficulty of change. From being a third culture kid and having to move schools, to as a missionary, dealing with major natural disasters such as the Indonesian tsunami and earthquake of 2004, to moving to new continents, to changing careers, to welcoming three new children into her home, change is a part of her life. She taught herself to pay attention to her emotions, to focus on the parts of change she could control, to stay flexible, and to prioritize self-care. Through these practices, she was able to cope with change in her life and find beauty in it.

Welcome to the A World of Difference podcast. Today we’re talking about change. We’re going to talk about why change is something we must face, both good and bad. And I would love to hear back from you on your perspective and your thoughts around change.
How can we change our attitude about change? I welcomed the change of welcoming into our home each of our three children. Change in my life has been one of the best decisions I ever made. An exclusive interview with each of you who are our patrons, the Patreon supporters, where I’ll dig into how I coped through some of the biggest changes.
Change was a part of my life growing up quite a bit, moving to new schools. I’ve had to learn a lot about change management and different leadership styles. Every work culture, every organizational culture has a different way of handling change. It has to be managed well.
Change is an inevitable part of life. Here are five ways to cope with change. Pay attention to your emotions. Focus on the parts of the change that you can control. Allow yourself to feel through them with a lot of self-compassion.
The fourth thing I would say is it’s really important to have a practice of caring for yourself. So practicing self-care when change happens. It’s so important to practice and prioritize self-care, especially in terms of transition.
In the realm of support is also seeking professional help from a therapist or a counselor. Remember, though, that coping with change is not an overnight thing. It takes time.
