When You Are Going Through a Transition

April 13, 2015

th-1… you have the time to see yourself.

When you are either in the past or a future space, you do not always have that luxury.

In life, we get caught up with the material world and how we are performing, where we are working, how we are dressing, who we are involved with, where we are living, etc…  Life gives us so many distractions and we unconsciously tend to focus all of our energy on these distractions. We drain ourselves over our daily mundane existence. We overestimate the importance of our to-do lists and we miss the bigger picture of why we are here and what we are meant to be learning/contributing. In other words, we get so busy trying to make a living, that we completely miss our lives. That is why transitions are so helpful. They can provide that much-needed time-out from life so you can regroup and get back on track.

When you are in transition, it is an enforced separation from your previous situation and because the new situation is not yet at hand, you have the time and space to focus on who you are and what you want out of life. Transitions are the perfect retreat and perfect opportunity for you to reflect upon your life.

Learn to be comfortable with yourself. Learn to allow yourself to fully embrace the energy of the transition. You do not need to have all the answers. You can spend the transition looking for them. What’s your rush? You will be delivered back into your mundane reality sooner than you realize. Enjoy the silence of the transition.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
