Transition

How many times in your life have you found yourself in the midst of difficult life transitions.  Maybe you lost your job, and it is unclear where or what your next job will be. Perhaps you’ve lost a loved one and struggle to contemplate life without them. Maybe you are even going through a planned transition–like a move to a different city–and even though this change has made a lot of sense and is giving you clear benefits, you still feel lost.

If so, you’re not alone. Life is change. The steady ground you’ve walked upon only came into being because of previous changes. Transitions and changes have a way of conjuring up unresolved hurts, old insecurities, and other issues you thought you’d overcome.  Sometimes these issues are unresolved from previous transitions.

You might be wondering if you’re doing the right thing. You might be getting conflicting messages as to whether you are making the right move or not. People in your life might be trying to pull you back to an old life–even if there are good reasons for you to want to leave that old life behind.

On Wednesday, August 10 at 7 p.m. I will give a talk and lead a discussion about life transitions. I will discuss the three elements common to all transitions and suggestions for how you can best take advantage of this uncertain but potentially transformational time.  The event will be held on Wednesday, August 10 in the community room at Panera Bread, 3416 University Avenue, Madison WI just two blocks east of Midvale Blvd. Look forward to seeing you there!
