I hope you are doing well – wherever you are. If you are not doing well – know that anything you are experiencing or feeling is welcome. In my experience working with women (and some men) in transition (and on myself!) over the last few years, I’ve learned that no inner or outer experience is unique (although that doesn’t make it any less painful / confusing / powerful!). You are a part of a larger community of people going through similar experiences, all over the world. And because I’d like to get to know the particular community that reads these words, I’ve decided to create a survey to get to know you better.
You may have noticed that the frequency of my columns have gone down lately. One reason I can give you (others are still unfolding) is that I’ve felt pulled to simply enjoy and be with life more lately- rather than trying to analyze or capture it in words. Life unfolds in mysterious, often unexpected and unintended ways and one thing I’ve explored more these last few years is learning to trust and work with the flow and timing of struggles, disappointments and opportunities that show up.
I know a lot has probably been going on for you as well – because if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years it’s that one woman’s experience of change at a certain time is often echoed by others, even if the nature of the change we face may be different. We live in times where change, whether on the inside or on the outside, palpable or subtle, is speeding up and becoming harder to ignore, sometimes overpowering us, other times empowering us.
On that note – I’d like to give the floor to you, my dear reader. I’ve put together a few questions to help us get to know each other and for me to get a sense of how I could support you in this second half of 2017 and (hopefully) onward. Feel free to share whatever you want – think of it as the virtual / survey equivalent of us meeting for a coffee in a park somewhere (the picture above is one I took in a park nearby). I look forward to connecting with you and hearing what’s been going on for you lately through your responses below.
