Learning to Love Transition

The last eight years I have been in transition a lot, whether it was moving to Chicago, Utah, back to Phoenix, losing my mom, or moving firms.  I was thinking about this yesterday and how I have called transition “hard”.  In the past when I was in transition, I let my lizard brain take over.  I would eat out of control, stop exercising, basically let “me” go. I get so focused on what is hard about it that I forget to look at the beauty of it.

I am in another transition of growing my business. I will not lose “me” as I go through it. I have made some boundaries for myself to ensure that I am taking care of “me”.  I know that allowing negative feelings is ok. That I don’t have to be positive all the time. I can sit with a negative feeling allow it and move on. I don’t have to let everything go; I don’t have to let my lizard brain take over.


Transition is a part of life, when I look back at the last 8 years, I would not change any of it because that is what was always going to happen. It was always going to be that way.


Transition is beautiful. It is growth. It is uncomfortable. It is change. We do hard things.
Are you in a transition right now? How are you ensuring you are taking care of yourself?  Have you stopped and noticed how you are thinking about it? Is your lizard brain in full effect?
