“The only constant is change,
I’m on a personal journey to redefine my life. Since I’m at the age where many people are retiring, I can’t call it a mid-life crisis. It’s not really a crisis at all, rather a personal commitment to live intentionally for the last chapter of my life—however long that is.
Retirement is not an option for me—I’m much too restless and passionate about what I do. I would be one of those people you hear about who drop dead the week after they retire. But after thirty-one years of practicing psychology full-time, I’m ready for it to look different.
Since my second passion is writing, I’m on a mission to create a life where I can write and practice psychology, while ensuring a healthy balance in other areas of my life including relationships and emotional and physical health. All of this reconstruction involves commitment and CHANGE.
Like most people, I wrestle with change. I don’t want the change I don’t want—and I want the change I want. And I don’t always want to let go of what I must in order to have what I want. Part of the premise of the ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui is letting go of STUFF to free up room for more energy to flow—creating new and BETTER stuff! But also like most people, I need change to create a new, more rewarding life.
