How to deal with big changes in your life
Transitions in life can be difficult and having a support system in place helps us with the change process. Some life changes are blessings such as a much needed promotion or the relocation of residence. Others, may not come as a perceived blessing and more of a life lesson. It is important to spend a few minutes a day in self-reflection to identify blessings and positively affirming them from a state of gratitude. It is also valuable to identify the daily learned lesson to promote change and transition out of vicious cycles that are not constructive for ourselves and others. Praise yourself and your support system for the effort, acknowledge what you can control, and let go of what is not serving you and those you love. And remember breathe.
Ask yourself: Am I aware of transitions when they are taking place? How do I feel and what am I capable of changing? What is my support system like and how can I help my support system?
