Transition Is A Journey

Transition in life is about experiencing a change such as moving to a new place or environment, having another birthday, stepping into or out of a relationship or becoming something new (like a parent or grandparent). Our life is full of change. Full of transitions from one thing to another.

All of those transitions mean that we change inside in some way, too. That can be a big change or it can be a small change. And that change can feel really exciting as you think about how the doors are opening to great new things, or people, or ideas. Or it can feel very scary or painful.

We often think of these kinds of things as an event. A moment in time. And that’s true. It’s also a process. A process of not just embracing the new but also letting go of the old. Letting go of what no longer serves you while also being conscious of becoming the person you are creating in this new space. And there’s real beauty and joy in that process. There’s also real opportunity. Real opportunity to start creating the life you want.

As you think about any change or transition in your life right now, I want you to take a moment and just breathe. I want you to imagine what it’s like to experience peace, contentment and joy. Acknowledge any feelings of fear or anxiety and then release them. Celebrate the journey that you’re on and celebrate yourself for being on it. Realize and understand that you are exactly where you need to be. And that you have the power, in this moment and every moment to create the life that you want. Transition is a journey and it’s also an opportunity. I hope it’s one that you grab onto with both hands.
