3 Things I Learned About Navigating Life Transitions

navigate life changesYou may have noticed that my blog has taken more of a personal approach in the recent weeks. Well, there’s a lot going on right now – in my personal and business life. There may be more to come on both, but for the purpose of this blog, I thought I would share some revelations. Perhaps it will guide you when you’re navigating major life changes.

Fear is natural. Change is scary. We wouldn’t be human if we didn’t have anxiety about it, especially a change that may indefinitely affect the future. Of course, I am still a big believer in calculated risks. But, I believe it takes a great deal of courage to pursue things outside of our comfort zone – to leave our safety net. Life is too short to wonder, ‘what if…’

There will be doubters. Whenever change happens, there are people who will doubt you. At times, you may even doubt yourself. I’ve learned to appreciate the perspective of those who question my decisions, but I also consider their motives. Some have a certain belief system that they try to push on others. And some are simply scared of change themselves so they try to undermine those who take risks. Of course, there are also people who are generally concerned and these are the folks who deserve a listen for what it’s worth.

There will also be supporters. As I said in my blog about the car accident that changed my life forever, it’s surprising who lends support and who ‘runs for the hills.’ I'm grateful for the support I have received so far in my life – especially during times when I need it the most. I’ve literally been brought to tears by people who support me wholeheartedly. It’s both comforting and empowering.

As I continue to my life’s journey, I’ve learned many important lessons during tough times, including to open myself up to allowing these experiences to strengthen me.
