You feel like you're drifting out at sea

You look around and don't seem to recognize the life you're living.  Somehow things got off course and you didn't realize how far you've drifted from where you want to be.  You just experienced a recent life transition which woke you up and made you realize that something needs to change.  You thought you knew where your life was headed, but now trying to make sense of your new reality.

Some examples of life transitions are: 

  • Transitioning to retirement

  • Moving to a new city

  • Grief/loss of a loved one

  • Empty Nest Syndrome

  • Becoming a new parent

  • Starting college

  • Getting married 

  • Transitioning to adulthood

  • Ending a relationship

  • Receiving medical diagnosis
