Therapy for Those Making Life Transitions
As Marilyn Monroe said, “Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” We take this idea very seriously, and find it to be true time and again. There are times in life when we are rudely jolted out of our routines, and have to take a hard look around. Loss will do this, as will things like graduation, finishing a project, ending a relationship, a change in health. Any time we are in that ambiguous in-between space, it is an opportunity and a challenge.
Transitions are a time of vulnerability and possibility, and if skillfully navigated, they can be very rewarding. Look around! Have you been living in accordance with your beliefs and desires? Have you been on a path leading in the direction you want to go? Compromise is unavoidable, but have you been compromising too much? Have you let go of plans or intentions important to you? While you are at it, this is a great time to ask these questions. Don’t leap into the next thing that presents itself, make a choice. Don’t let yourself be driven by anxiety or fear.
Change is an inevitable part of life, and it naturally elicits great uncertainty, and self-doubt. To greet this experience with less fear and more curiosity puts you in a position of strength. There are myriad ways to bridge any period of change, and how you step into the transition process will influence your experience of it, as well as how you feel about where you land. In the meantime, the importance of taking care of yourself as you go cannot be overstated.
Living a mindful life requires meticulous attention all the time. Everything matters, from the food you put into your body, to who you spend time with, to what you do with every hour. Engaging in a loving effort to build a life around yourself that will support your growth and development requires patience and engagement. We would love to accompany you on this journey, offering a safe space to try things out and stretch your wings of imagination and possibility. Only by articulating your dreams can you find a way to translate them into a tangible reality
