The Pain and Joy of Being in Transition


2009 was a year of transition for many of us. Leaving jobs, starting businesses, changing business strategies, facing the power of social media, or whatever it is for you.

I’m currently going through a “birthing” process into a new phase of my business and I’m appreciating how exciting and challenging transitions can be.

Like an unplanned pregnancy, a business transition can sneak up on you and force you to rethink everything from your values to your life purpose. But the idea of the “baby” coming is also thrilling.

I notice so many people are taking this global transition time to embrace what’s really important to them. There’s the joy.

When I first drafted this post a few weeks ago, I was more in the murkiness of the transition, like a baby that was past due and I was getting a bit cranky.

It’s nice to notice that only a few weeks later, I’m fully in the joy of it. The baby is here!

I’m wishing you joy or acceptance of murkiness in whatever birthings are happening for you right now.

The potential is truly amazing if you can embrace it!

Sending sincere thanks to my “midwives”: Nadia, Lisa, Dave, Kelli, Sara, Jaime, Denise, Joe, Angela, Dan, Joan, Bett, and well, everyone that’s listened and cheered me on. It takes a village…
