I've been thinking about transitions and the work that people need to do whenever they go through any major life transition. Whether you are returning to school, changing jobs, getting married, getting divorced, becoming a parent or grandparent. Life is all about transitions. Something inevitably changes and you find yourself in a transition.
If there is one resource that I recommend around understanding transitions it is the best selling book by William Bridge, Managing Transitions. Click on the cover below for details.
Often we decided we want to change something in our lives. We want a new job, new house, new friends, new pet, or new partner (admit it you have thought about it at some point!). We have internalized the marketing hype of 'new and improved'. We believe that this new thing that we desire is going to change everything wrong or missing in our lives. What we discover is that it changes things but there is a transition that happens as a result of the change. It is in the transition that we get stuck. Life as we knew it has changed but there is an adjustment before we settle into this new way of being.
If you find yourself stuck and want to talk about a transition you are experiencing. Maybe you don't know what is next but you know that you need to change. Email me. I've spent my life in transition! I'd be happy to work with you to get clarity and make sense of your transition story..
