THE ONLY CONSTANT
A Guide to Embracing Change and Leading an Authentic Life
by Najwa Zebian
Harmony, March 2024
Most people want something in their life to change, whether it’s their job, their personal relationships, or their ability to live authentically. And sometimes, unwanted change comes all too swiftly. We may want to jump over the hard, confusing parts, but true growth happens in that uncomfortable space in between here and there.
This is a tender and wise guide to accepting yourself as you are now, embracing the impermanence, and celebrating the fact that change is what puts the life in life. Written with poetic wisdom, Najwa shares her personal experiences with change and guides us through the changes we choose, like embarking on a new career or setting boundaries, and changes we don’t choose, like the loss of a loved one, a relationship, or a job.
Ultimately, Zebian teaches that the purpose of change is to step into the world as your most authentic self. THE ONLY CONSTANT is here to assure us that uncertainty is natural. Change is scary. But it’s the path to living as your true self. We may be in the in-between, but that journey is just as beautiful as the destination.
