“When we are really attached to things staying the same, change can be extremely threatening and painful.” – Terri Cole



How do you feel about change?

Does it make you anxious? Nervous? Uncomfortable?

Do you tend to want things to stay the same?

Think about how you might feel if your favorite shampoo was discontinued, your favorite grocery shop closed, or someone took “your spot” in a gym or yoga class.

In this episode, I am talking about how to navigate change, growth, and transformation, and where grief fits into this process. We have to grieve the way things were to embrace how things are. This is true even when we experience changes we desire, like getting married, buying a home, or relocating for a dream job. We still need to mourn the loss of how our life used to be.

  1. For over a decade I have had debilitating chronic health issues. Your quote "I would not call my cancer a gift because I certainly wouldn't want to give it to you ……………………" really resonated with me. It felt so validating. Thank you for articulating my thoughts so beautifully.
