The way you use your time is the way you live your life.
Transitions. They are happening around us and within us all the time, from moment to moment, and they come in all sizes. Transitions are as small and ‘everyday’ as your in-breath and out-breath. They are also as momentous and all-encompassing as birth and death.
Transitions, because they always represent a change of some sort, are fundamentally disorienting. Depending on its size and scope, a transition can really throw you off track. So that’s why it’s so important to know how to find and keep to your path of power when you’re in the midst of transitions.
The Finding Time E-zine is a monthly source of practical tips and thought-provoking articles geared to help you meet and master your time challenges. And so it was with transitions when we shared our article titled: “Transitions – Create a Pathway of Power.” I’ll post an excerpt below, and if you’d like to listen to the article in full, just CLICK THIS LINK.
Life is often bigger than your plans. When your schedule is disrupted by unanticipated events, you can always choose how you respond. So, I’d like to invite you to view these changes as special opportunities to grow and broaden your vision of life.
How do you relate to your power when you undergo change?
Remember, when you make a transition, you are transforming yourself. It is natural to feel off balance initially, so go slowly. Affirm to yourself that important learning can temporarily upset your equilibrium. Encourage yourself to proceed gently, with eyes wide open.
Learning about your unique approach to transitions helps you create a pathway of power that is both grounded and balanced.
So let’s start by shining a light on what transitions and change mean to you.
Illuminate your inner landscape to find your footing.
Your transition style intimately reflects your history and hopes. You may bring creativity and initiative to upcoming transitions, especially if they are changes of your own choosing. However, your default responses may also include rigid coping patterns you developed early in life, when you may have been overwhelmed and under-informed.
It’s easy to resort to old behaviors under stress. Unfortunately, reflexive actions rarely do justice to complex demands. So offer yourself a special gift — explore those reflexes and stuck points with curiosity and compassion.
