Well, in the next couple of days I will be making a huge transition from Denver to Minneapolis/St. Paul! As I do this, I am thinking of how I have successfully dealt with transitions in the past, and will list a few things that have helped me.
1. Open To Change: I think having this mindset is incredibly important. Be open to new possibilities even if at first it doesn’t seem like something you want. For example, before I decided to lose weight, the idea that working out every day would become something I wanted to do would have seemed ridiculous to me! New things will take you to a place you’ve never been before and at the worst it is a life experience.
2. Prepare-This one is very important to me. Before doing something new, I try to do all the research and preparation I can. I find this ultimately makes the new experience easier and more seamless.
3. Don’t Look Back-Yes it’s important to learn from the past and even hang onto the memories. But don’t let that cripple you from moving towards the next step. Live in the now and in the future rather than in the past.
Would love to hear your thoughts!
