There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~Anaïs Nin
This journey of 101 ways of Managing A Transition was a personal reflection on the transitions I’ve lived so far. For the last eight days, I’ve had the honour of sharing with you transition stories from our guest writers. Each one on a unique journey but with similar challenges, reminding us all of how much we actually have in common with each other.
Our joys and sorrows may not be the same but who can argue the pain we might feel in each situation. As parents, we share the same concerns for our children. As employees, we face the same challenges. As leaders, our leadership skills get tested on a daily basis with rapidly changing events and ever increasing demands.
It takes much courage to share and reveal our innermost thoughts, fears and aspirations to another. But in doing so, we create a world that is more connected, more patient, and more understanding. In this sharing lies also our potential for self actualization.
Story telling was very much a part of our ancestors’ lives in maintaining history and gaining wisdom. It still holds the same power for the fast paced world we live in. Turn to your loved ones, neighbours or friends and seek to share in these times of turmoil to create a better world. Be there for others who might need you in their times of weakness and offer the support that you once needed… or might need one day.
I now invite you to share your stories, thoughts and ideas about transitions or transformations with our readers here. Thank you for being part of this journey!
