Expecting…a different journey…than this one?
If you have found yourself on a different path than where you began, you are one of the lucky ones.
Unexpected circumstances are THE BEST indicators that you are fully experiencing life the way it was intended. Life doesn’t hand you situations that you are not equipped to handle.
Major life transitions — moving to a new city, becoming a parent, retirement — can be an exciting and invigorating part of life. Yet transitions, even happy ones, can also be stressful and bring up mixed feelings.
Transitions … and loss of identity…
It is natural to define yourself by your surroundings and it can be disorienting when you wake up in unfamiliar territory.
▪ Getting married changes your identity from an “I” to a “we”.
▪ Having a child often results in disassociating yourself from all that was once child-like about you, as it is now expected for you to be everything adult.
▪ A new career will change your identity or role as a professional and in some cases your credibility as an expert.
▪ Moving to a new city means making new friends and adapting the way that you interact to “fit in”.
Coping with the Unanticipated
You may have easily forgotten about the times where a wrench was thrown into the works and you managed to overcome the problem without batting an eye. (Struggling to remember?) That is most likely because the experience didn’t affect you enough to be worth remembering. Good! This means that you are already capable of dealing with the unforeseen.
Unexpected Challenges are Opportunities in Disguise
Large or small… ANYTHING unexpected is your chance to take initiative, use your creative problem-solving abilities, make progress as a person, and discover what you are made of.
Handle life transitions like a spiritual warrior.
Attitude is EVERYTHING. Even in the face of adversity, choosing an optimistic viewpoint will ALWAYS result in an increase in dividends.
While unexpected situations don’t always give us the chance to to prepare for new endeavors and major life transitions, there is always time for self-reflection and self-growth. You never know what fortunes this new path will bring.
