What is a transition?
In my 45 years as a yoga teacher, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many amazing people
Everyday, ordinary people who are actually quite extraordinary
I’ve heard about career changes, marriages and divorce, children leaving home, caring for aging parents, so many emotional and physical transitions
What I hear is that for most people, these can be stressful
But here’s the thing I've discovered:
Transitions need not be traumatic
Because they are actually part of everyone's life, every single day
No one is ever the same as the day before
Everything is always changing, even if it feels like you're stuck
You, like the Universe of which you are a part, are always moving into your next phase
You will be evolving for as long as you exist - and science says that's forever
So why don't transitions feel natural?
Why don't we embrace them more?
You can learn to appreciate the beauty of change … once you remember that you were actually built to change
And somewhere inside, you do remember
That's why when you don’t allow yourself to expand into all that you were meant to become
You feel the discomfort ...
If you've ever felt lethargic and disinterested in things that used to excite you...
If you've ever felt overwhelmed far beyond the circumstances around you ...
If you've ever felt vague dissatisfaction that you can't quite name
You've likely been in transition-mode
You may end up blaming others for the stress you're feeling: “If only he would do what I needed, I’d feel better...”
But transition is always an inside job
And you know… it’s OK to be uncomfortable; in fact, it may be your first step forward
Even though you've been told stay put
To not expect too much so you won't be disappointed
To prepare for the worst and be grateful that things aren't worse
It is these very ideas that feel “stuck" to you.
What if you were taught to look forward to change
To see uncertainty as a sign that the best is yet to come
To feel enjoyment, even amusement as you expect to be delighted by new things
And if each time your life wasn't going as planned, you knew for sure that things were going just as you intended
When it comes to transitions, you can hold yourself back in fear
Or you can learn to invite it all in with open arms
Open yourself to the possibility…
To live your most extraordinary capabilities …
And uncover dreams you never even imagined you could realize
That’s the opportunity
