During times of unrest, change, confusion, disruption, unease or the unknown we often say we are 'in transition." It
gives us comfort to say this as we help ourselves understand that what we feel and experience is not a permanent state. The
space that is freed up is a gift. Be it space to think, space to breathe, space to be different, space to question or simply
space to be quiet.
I am in transition. I relish every moment of this. It allows for reflection. It allows for reconnection with the many
people I am often too busy to communicate with. It allows for redefining what is important. It allows me to write, to create,
to reinvent, and to experiment.
Why we lose or do not recongize these abilities or opportunities when we are not in transition is something to ponder.
What is it about routine that makes us so focused we feel like we are a horse wearing blinders? What is it that we are doing
in our small world that keeps us from branching out in many directions and exploring possibilities? When we experience change
why do we often hear the term ' I feel like a whole new world has opened up for me?' Is it because we are open, because we
have heightened our senses, because we have reconnected and look for synchronicity and intuition to help us find our new path?
My transition time now provides an incredible warmth. I feel connected to humanity in a new way. I look forward in some
ways to "landing" somewhere to refocus my energy and in other ways would love to stay in transition awhile. Perhaps
I will try to carry my transitional spirit with me, it may make me a better leader.
