Life Transitions
Life transitions or changes in our lives are not inherently good or bad, but many people still dread them.
Even though transitions in themselves are not good or bad, they are often a time of growth. And, if there is
one thing about life that is certain, it is that there will be changes in our lives. Our attitude toward these
transitions can help or hinder us as we work through these. Drawing close to family, friends and having a
inevitable that so do our seasons in life. And, as the Fall season approaches, I’m reminded of a song by
my brother-in-law, *Chuck Nabors, from “First Love Again”, which reads:

“When you see the leaves fall from the trees
Does it make your heart turn blue
Another year has come and gone away
Then you find a faded photograph
Of a time when once you smiled
And you wipe a tearful memory from your eyes
That’s the time to get away
That’s the time to find your Best Friend
That’s the time to find your Love
Your first Love again. . . .”

In addition to attitude and drawing close to others, transitions are also a good time to do an emotional
inventory
