The way we understood and thought of life as children is not what we understand as adults. We continue to learn and evolve as humans based on what is going on right now and how we relate to each situation.

It is said that the one constant in life is change. Transitions are sometimes difficult and we grow in many ways as we experience times of change. Everything changes — from the seasons, our health, our thoughts, our bodies, to our perspectives on life. The way we understood and thought of life as children is not what we understand as adults. We continue to learn and evolve as humans based on what is going on right now and how we relate to each situation. 

Equanimity is a way to work with change that helps us accept transitions with grace and patience. Equanimity is defined as, “mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation.” How do we bring mental calmness and composure to difficult situations? Life can be really challenging, and many times it seems we will never make it through. Equanimity helps us bring ease and acceptance into stressful and unpleasant experiences so that we are at peace no matter what changes come into our lives.
