5 Ways to Survive Transition

Transition is hard! Change is hard. It’s not impossible, but it is hard. My family just moved to a new home about 5 miles out of town. As I’m coming back to my roots and making adjustments to how I’ve been living for the last 10+ years (the grocery store is no longer 5 blocks away, turns out I had become a bit accustomed to that), I’m having to work hard to stay grounded and continue my practices of self-care.  It’s been beautiful, but it is a challenge. Deciding where to keep the plates, which drawer the silverware should go in, and deciding where the linen cupboard should be are just some of the struggles that come with moving into a new place. It’s a transition, and the transition is never easy, but it is so worth it. Sitting on my back porch with my dog, the cats that came with the place, and watching the sunrise as I write this make it oh so worth the challenges.

Stay Grounded

Are you grounded? Sure, we’re all under quarantine for Covid-19 and not going anywhere, but that isn’t the kind of grounded I’m talking about. Let’s talk about grounding your energy.

Let’s think about an electrical circuit for a minute. We know that that circuit must be closed to allow for the proper flow of that current. We also know that if that circuit is broken, say a downed power line or a wire that has been chewed on by a mouse, the connection is lost and there may have even been some chaos that ensued. Maybe the cut power line is spraying sparks everywhere. Maybe you received a shock from the toaster, or a house fire was started. Electricity will always take the path of least resistance.
