There is such a thing as a transition period in life.

I know this because I’m going through one right now.  This probably doesn’t come as much surprise to those of you who know me.  Would you believe I've been going through this transition for the past four years?

Let me explain...

Each of us has a divine spark within.

My divine spark ignited on February 25, 2017.  Although, I knew deep down there was a big shift happening in me months before that.   The hunch kept nagging at me that there was something more for me in my career.  In late 2016,  I finally came to my knees to pray and meditate.

  • Why do I feel this yearning for more?
  • Why am I not satisfied with where I am in life?
  • Why do I feel my family isn’t complete?

I journaled what I heard inside, “Look at what is within.”

Because I wasn't sure how to comprehend that message, I continued to journal and pray.  I knew there was something special about that afternoon in December of 2016, but I had no idea what a significant day it would soon become.

Fast forward several months to February 25, 2017.  Which also happens to be my father's birthday.

I find out I’m pregnant.  Immediately, I return to the message I heard back in December.  “Look at what is within”.  I was pregnant and didn’t know it!  After having two children, I couldn't believe a third was on the way.

Here I am, three years later, still in the transition period.

But, I’m able to talk about it now.  Why?  Because I think so many of us need to hear stories like this.  I don’t have everything figured out, but I know I’m on the right track.  The answers are coming as fast as I can take them on.

I'm not exactly sure what's next for me.  Although, I have some ideas, nothing is official.  I’m trying hard not to be too attached to the final outcome.  By keeping myself open to new opportunities, I trust the right ones will continue to present themselves when the time is right.  Above all, it’s time to give myself some grace and permission to pause and be still.

I want to start conversations.

That I know for sure.  These conversations will create the connections we long for.  We’re too quick to judge others; undoubtedly, each of us has something we wish to change or improve.

Living up to my full potential and doing meaningful work, that’s what I've wanted all along.  I’m beyond excited because I know this is just the beginning….

Is your divine spark ignited?  I can’t wait to hear what’s written on your heart.
