Transition.

20130407-125525.jpgTransitions are hard.  One of the best visual of an awesome transition in one’s life is the carrying of his wife (or her husband carrying her) across the threshold as they begin a new life together.

Transitions – all transitions – result in a feeling of loss and the grieving of that loss.  Yes, even good transitions like having a baby, your child obtaining his or her driver’s license, going to college, moving out into his or her own place, providing you with a grandtoy (TM).  It’s all about change and growth and loss and grief.

When we think of loss and grief, we often think about divorce, loss of a loved one, or loss of a limb or pet.

But, what about a new job?  Or, a new career?

Yes.  That, too.
