Transitions and changes often go hand in hand with periods of reflection and stillness. Time that we need to spend with ourselves.
Big changes like ending relationships and job transitions test our patience and courage. These are times of growth, although they don't feel this way. Although we may even be aware of positive changes and new beginnings on our path and even near future, we still feel the ending.
So we let ourselves feel our truth. Because when we acknowledge what we are experiencing in the here and now, we move forward as our most authentic selves.
In these transition times of self reflection, we really do learn the most. They may be uncomfortable, but they allow us to learn balance and self-care. We learn to love ourselves and receive support. We learn that our self-worth is not attached to anything external. We deserve support and love simply because we are human.
When our self-worth is not attached to things like if we are working or not, how much money we have or if we are in relationship, we learn to love ourselves for who we are.
Radical self love I call it!
And when we come from this place of true worthiness, all the rest simply adds to our already powerfully shining inner light.
