When we’re in the midst of transition, some life change that has turned our world as we know it upside down, the passage of time takes on new and deeper meanings.
Too Slow for those who Wait
Too Swift for those who Fear
Too Long for those who Grieve
Too Short for those who Rejoice
But for those who love
Time is eternity
Henry Van Dyke
Are you waiting to hear news about a new job? Maybe you are anxiously awaiting the results of a medical procedure. While you wait, the clock seems to tick so much slower.
If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, a marriage or a career, time may hang heavy and seem to move at a snail’s pace.
In your grief, you may feel lost and wondering how you will ever feel whole again. Who are you without your loved one or the identity of your career or being a part of a couple? Where do you now belong?
If you fear what will come next, time is swift, leaving you with the feeling of being out of control. Times of change and transition create struggles within us and the distortion of time outside of us.
Time is constant. The hours and minutes in our days never change. It is our perception of those hours and minutes that become too fast, too slow or seem to stand still under the stress of change and unknowing.
Can you nurture yourself through these times? Do you surround yourself with love, gentleness and caring so you can find your path? Let me help as well. I’d love to hear from you.
