Marking Milestones and Making Meaning as You Move Through Time

marking milestones
Yes, savor your life…

Marking milestones and celebrating anniversaries is so important. It’s one way that we reinforce our values.

The act of marking milestones also helps us pause and ground ourselves, even as we keep moving toward the next goal. It re-energizes us as we travel through time.

The graduation season that many just celebrated offers an excellent example of this.

Rituals and celebrations…

And while these rituals reinforce our values, they also give us an opportunity to feel our growth. The act of marking milestones allows us to:

  • Appreciate our connections and relationships,
  • Express gratitude,
  • Reflect on the past, and
  • Make new beginnings. 

Pausing and finding the time for a mindful experience while marking milestones offers an awful lot, doesn’t it?

We’re marking milestones today.

Here at The Time Finder we are very pleased to celebrate the completion of our eleventh year of blogging.  So much has happened, both in the world and right here at Finding Time since we first posted on June 24, 2008.

Now here we are, hundreds and hundreds of posts later. I’m appreciating new and old friends and feeling glad and grateful for the exploring that we’ve done together.

And I’m also looking ahead with anticipation and renewed energy. What will the coming year bring? Some of it we can predict. But there will also be things that come as a surprise, I am sure.  Either way, I am so happy to be sharing this journey through time with you.

And you?

What milestones have you celebrated lately?  Are there gratitudes, accomplishments or new beginnings that you’d like to share?  Please drop me a line – I’d love to hear

Do you ever feel like change is coming at you too fast, or like it just arrives, uninvited, out of the blue?

I’ve recently been working with a client who was blind-sided by the sudden passing of a long-time co-worker. It’s turned her work life upside down and has also shaken her on a deep and personal level because this co-worker was the same age and also a good friend.

It’s brought up all kinds of big questions, on top of grief, and new work demands. The stresses and questions are piling up and she is feeling disoriented and anxious.

We’ve been working together on this for several weeks now. And today I shared a new time tool with her. I want to share it with you as well.

It’s titled How to Partner with Change and Aging. And to discover more about it right now, you can click here.

Let’s explore time together …
