If you are in transition, having recently experienced the trauma of a divorce, loss of a job, or some other life-changing event, then hopefully my story and some of my own insights may help you to turn this awful experience into one that has meaning and value in your life. I will walk you through those steps that are necessary to come out on the other side of the GOLDEN door!
Close your eyes. Imagine that you have just come from having a door slammed in your face and you are at one end of a long dark hall. At the end of that hall is a golden door. You don’t know what is on the other side of that door, but you sense that it is something wonderful. Or, you may be afraid of opening yet another door which will put you back into another long, dark and lonely hall. You try to reach that door, but it seems such a long way away – with the long dark hall between you and it……. You ask yourself – how do I get to that door and the promise of a Golden Life? It seems unreachable, but I know there is a way to get there – I feel lost, alone, helpless.
Now open your eyes (you memorized the script didn’t you?) What you just experienced was similar to the experience of a transition. Life is one big collection of transitions – from birth to death, from follower to leader, from single to married to single, from parent to empty-nester – everything involves transition. How can you transition successfully?
