Take Transition Time Totally

As you read this, you may be experiencing a major or minor transition in your personal or professional lives. Some transitions are the result of positive expected or unexpected events while other transitions are due to negative expected or unexpected events. You can make a transition happen or a person or situation can make a transition happen to you. Perhaps, you have just begun or ended a business or personal relationship or maybe you have lost someone close to you. You may have started a new job or business, been fired or let go from your job or contract or experienced a sudden surge or downturn of clients/customers in your business. You could be observing someone who is going through a personal or professional transition and wanting to know how you can best support them. As spring arrives, you might be looking at where you are now, realizing it is not exactly where you want to be and wondering what you need to do to get to a better place in your life, career or business. You feel that you are overdue for a change and want to take the necessary steps to make the commitment to transform a dream into a reality.

Transitions can be slow or fast and easy or hard. Sometimes, you can control them but more often than not they control you and you must surrender, allow the transition to take its course and make the most of the transition and what it can offer you. Transitions, be they personal or professional, are times to stop, take a breath and find your feet in the fog; to think about what you want and how to get there; to reflect on what is working well and what needs improvement; to do an inventory of your feelings and ensure that you have handled then discarded any baggage that you have been carrying from previous transitions and experiences; to rest, relax and recharge so that you are prepared and energized for the opportunities that will come your way during the transition. This will allow you to make the right moves and decisions to move you out of the transition into a new and exciting chapter in your personal or professional life. If you have recently started something new, remember to focus clearly, listen closely, understand completely, share creatively, decide collaboratively and adjust constructively.

Take transition time totally even though it seems like it will never end. Before you know it, time will have passed quickly and a new beginning will have appeared or will be waiting just around the corner. If you give yourself the gift of this time and do the hard work that is required, you will be open and ready to receive all of the good things that will come your way. Someday, you may even look back on this time  as one of the best times of your life.
