Workshop 3: Exploring our Story & Moving Forward
What is a transition? Some of our transitions in life are obvious and fast. Losing your job. Starting a new career. Moving. Becoming a wife, husband mother or father. Child leaving for college or moving back home. Embracing a new sober way of being. Stepping into a new version of ourselves. Starting a new stage of life.
In all transitions, there are some common themes. Letting go if the old way of being in the old story, acknowledging fears of what the new path may look like. Setting strong intentions that are in line with who you are and the direction you really want to be going in. The last stage is so important. In order to set intentions for the direction we are going in, we have to continually check in with ourselves and listen to our own inner guidance. If we are to free and clear of old patterns we create them over and over again.
Want patterns do you want to create? What does your new path feel like? What emotions do you want to feel each day in this new life? It’s all about aligning with yourself.
Connect to your passion, creativity, inspiration, purpose and authenticity.
