Great post on one of my favorite bloggers, Pamela Slim / Escape from Cubicle Nation. 8 Strategies to get the most from painful or awkward life transitions . About to have her 3rd baby, she offers great ideas for going through those times when you’re experiencing change and it puts you off balance.
She even quotes from a favorite book of mine, Transitions: making sense of life’s changes , William Bridges. I frequently recommend it to clients. Neither Bridges nor Slim talk about or live with chronic illness (at least that I know of). But it doesn’t matter. We’re all going to face transition sooner or later in our lives, for one reason or another. Living with illness creates a state of constant transition. It’s usually not pleasant while you’re there. And, at some point you will move on. But, you have to allow yourself to be in that space of “off balance” so you can develop into the person you’re going to be. Rosalind
