You will get there. It will get easier. Don’t stop the faith and gratitude for where you are and where you are going.
Sometimes it isn’t easy to remember. Write it on a post-it next to your computer, your car’s dashboard, your kitchen cabinet. Write it on the front of your journal, on Wednesday in your day timer. Write it on the bathroom mirror with a dry erase pen. “I will get there. I feel strong. I am moving to a new exciting place”.
There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind. ~C.S. Lewis
This Hello Monday podcast from Linked In regarding Transitions really spoke to me today. Bruce Feiler* described that transitions are hard. On average, they take five years to recover from. We need to get quicker, hone our tools, We go through 3 stages: Shedding, Messy middle, and Creative. Then we arrive at a new and better price. We kick booty, take names, and write our own gorgeous fairy tale that describes our hero’s journey.
Life is in the Transitions by Bruce Feiler.
