Moving from change to transition

At some point we’re all going to change. We learn how to crawl and then walk. We speak our first words. We have our first love and our very first goodbye. No matter what, life just keeps moving. But what does it all mean…to change? What about when we didn’t ask for it? What about when it makes us feel pain and regret. What about when it’s not our own choice?

I guess the thing is that no matter what we do, change is going to happen. But there’s a difference between change and transition. Change doesn’t need our permission. It happens whether we like it or not. But transition is something quite different. Transition is when we take back our power. It’s when we decide to move forward with purpose. Whether physically or emotionally driven, it’s when we decide to reclaim and reshape our lives. Maybe you want a new job. Maybe you just got fired. Maybe you’re starting a business. Maybe you just got divorced or recently retired…or you're recovering from a serious illness. Maybe you’re trying to live a healthier lifestyle. These are all changes – some you decided on; some were decided for you. But transition takes it to the next level. It’s when you decide that from this day on I’m going to set my life back in motion. I’m going to get up, get out, and do something about it.

But here’s the challenge: it’s hard to go through it alone. Transition doesn’t happen overnight. You’ll go through a hundred and ten deep emotions. You’ll feel elated, then sad, then depressed, then happy again. At times you will want to give up. This is something that I see every day. This is something that I go through myself. It’s a difficult, life changing process – it’s also what I support as a coach. Every step, every doubt, every victory, I help you put your life back in motion so that you can see the beauty of YOU!
