|I don’t know about you, but being in transition is scary and I feel insecure. You want to get it right but its unchartered territory so it’s all new. You have not been here before. It’s uncomfortable. So you look back, you Facebook-stalk other people and compare yourself to them or to what you had in the past.
This just makes you feel worse. You look back and recall about how great life was then and you question what you are doing now. You ask yourself why on earth you changed. You changed because you want something better and you want to grow. You refused to settle.
While it’s OK to look back and review aspects of your life as you can learn from them but that is not where you are headed.
Have you ever text someone only to notice that your phone has autocorrected a word which totally changed the context of what you have typed. Just as you need to start typing in order to have a message to send, so you need to move forward in life in order to achieve the transition. There will be aspects in life that you won’t get right first time. It is all part of the process.
As you move forward your life will autocorrect. As much as I’d like forward movement to be smooth, secure and perfect (there is the perfectionist coming out in me again), it’s not.
You will bump into things that will guide you forward. The bumps are lessons you need to learn in order to move forward to where you want to be. These bumps help you autocorrect along the way.
So next time your phone types ‘hiney ‘ instead of ‘honey’ remember your life too will autocorrect but you have to keep moving forward.
