Sometimes everything suddenly changes. The transition from one state of being to another rarely seems to be gradual. I don’t know why the transition to something new is usually a shock.
When, during a vacation in Jordan, my relationship disintegrated from one minute to the next, it was such a fierce transition. One moment everything seems OK, the next you are in shock, sad, angry, nothing is what it seems and everything is chaos. During my morning meditation, I felt very peaceful and told the universe I was ready to apply the new principle that I was reading about; to consider every pain that comes into your life as a growth opportunity. I even challenged the universe to bring on ‘the next lesson’. I expected that I would get a little ‘test’. Not. It was more intense than I could have ever imagined. A good example of ‘don’t try this at home’…
How do you deal with shock, with sudden change, with disappointment, sadness, loss, with the disappearance of everything you thought you were sure of? I have always been a ‘survivor’, so I rebooked my Jordan trip, found a new apartment in Amsterdam and arranged the move. But then? Just continue as I always do? Or acknowledge the pain this time and try to learn from it?
In this inspiration shot, you will find a personal travel blog, some books that I find very helpful and some other tips and things to know if you are also going through a transition. Whether it is work or private: the more comfortable you feel, the greater the chance that the next step is near, whether you like it or not.
