Honestly, I’ve been feeling a little lack luster the last two days, sleepy, a bit uninspired. Do you ever feel that way? Do you ever wonder, ‘What the heck is going on with me? I don’t feel very inspired or energized, my feet are dragging and I just feel like laying out in the sun or sleeping a little longer in my bed!’
And then you take a moment to look at your life and it dawns on you, that you’re in the midst of another one of life’s big transitions.
Transition is a part of life for every human being. At one time or another we are transitioning through relationships, in and out of different projects, businesses, work environments, school, moving to a new home, new state, new country, letting go so that we can let in more of what we truly desire.
Through the years I’ve noticed that whenever I’m going through a transition, I usually start by wondering, ‘What the heck is going on with me?!’ And then I stop, breathe, take a step back and look at my life and I remember that, ‘Ohhh… I’m in the midst of another transition! That’s what it is.’
I remind myself that transition (whether it’s something we’re super stoked for or something that causes us pain) is usually uncomfortable. It brings up our stuff and has us living on our edge.
And this is where I’m at today. I chose to let go of a man that I love because the relationship was only working 65% of the time, and while my heart is heavy at times and I miss him in my life, I know it’s the best and most courageous thing I can do right now. My daughter and I will also be moving out of the home we’ve shared with my parents these last 2 years into a new home of our own, and although this is so exciting and I can hardly wait, I feel some sadness in my heart and a little fear about what this new experience will be like.
So… the last few days, as I’ve felt the energy of transition within my heart and being, here’s what I’m giving myself the space to do:
-Feel my feelings as they come up
-Go to bed earlier at night and rest a few minutes longer in the morning
-Go for walks and experience the abundance of spring and life all around me
-Reach out to a friend for support, love, tea
-Be tender and gentle with myself
And now I’m curious.. How do you take care of yourself when you’re in the midst of a transition?
