Making Changes We Desire
SHOW NOTES: Episode 8
Do you desire change in your life or relationships? On today’s episode, I am sharing more with you about something important to me and something I believe makes a big impact in our relationships and that is desiring a change.
Sometimes we turn to books or podcasts and sometimes we wallow in our pity or we vent to others. There are a lot of ways we handle things when we can’t seem to make the changes we want in our life and our relationships. I think it’s really important to break this down and unravel it and look at the simple ways this can be done and how to make the changes that we want.
The first thing we have to do is realize that we are not spectators in our life. We have a role in our life and the changes we make. We can’t change others but we can change ourselves. We have to start the self-awareness journey. The best place to start is to look at those relationships that are difficult first. Try to find the common denominator in all of those relationships, the overarching issue that you’ve had in your relationships. This is hard to do but if you really want something to change, you have to do something different. Nothing changes, if nothing changes.
Are you willing to do the hard work of looking at yourself, being honest with yourself, and then making some changes with yourself? We are not trying to manipulate or control anymore. We are working on real, sustainable change here. The next step from here is to take hold of it, apply it to your life, and intentionally practice it. I’d love to hear about it!

MORE ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIPS UNRAVELED PODCAST:
Life’s greatest joy and greatest pain come in our relationships with others. God created us for relationships so it's no surprise that we learn best how to navigate them…together!
On Relationships Unraveled, we will create an inviting atmosphere for conversations that goes below the surface! We will unravel stories and relationship dynamics of all kinds (God, Self, and Others), through honest and practical conversations that shock the norm to create new perspectives and understanding! I am your host, Maranda Kirk, and I use my faith in Jesus, passion, life experiences, and training as a life coach and Enneagram coach, to unravel ideas around relationships.
On this show, we will talk honestly and practically about relationship dynamics we all face, so we can live the life we were created for, be an inspiring example to others, and ultimately fan the flame of relational wellness! I learn and grow tremendously from the conversations I’m having with people, so I want to bring you along, in hopes that, by listening in, you will feel supported as you are challenged and encouraged to apply new ideas, understanding or skills to the relationships in your life and begin making the changes you desire! By experiencing small wins, we create momentum as we make progress!
