I am on a short hiatus as I develop new programs and content for this community. For the next two weeks, I’ll be sharing with you posts I’ve written in the last few months for other sites across the internet. I hope you enjoy them and I will be back the first full week of April with brand new content for you.
This week I share a post I wrote for my friend Jenny’s blog on making transitions easier. We’ve been talking a lot about navigating change this month and these words fit right in line with that theme. Happy reading!
We are in the time of year when lots of transitions are happening. We have just transitioned from one year to another. If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere you have just transitioned from Spring to Summer. And we in the Northern Hemisphere have just experienced the transition of the Winter Solstice, the time of year when the period of darkness is longest.
Though technically it will get lighter as the days progress through January, it will be awhile before we can truly feel like we are experiencing more light than dark.
Transitions can feel an awful lot like the Winter Solstice.
Transitions are hard. Transitions in times of darkness can feel even harder because it can be so hard to see the light while faced with so much darkness. The change is necessary, we know this but moving through it is no less difficult for its necessity and sometimes the necessity makes it even harder.
If you are navigating a change of some sort, I want to share with you three things you can do to help make getting through this time a little easier.
