Transitions are always growth opportunities in action. 

As I look forward, I know letting go of what’s been a constant, predictable, and consistent source of growth, learning, and joy is part of a necessary transition to get to the next place. 

I can’t hang onto what I’ve always done and at the same time emerge into where I need to go. 

The two are in opposition, yet they each serve a purpose.  

Letting go requires trust.  

In my gut, I know the next trapeze is there for me even when I can’t see it. I need to let go of the trapeze I’ve been using, though it’s comfortable and familiar. It’s time to grow. 

As I let go, there is a space of nothingness. I’m suspended in the air trusting the next trapeze will emerge even as I reach into empty space, untethered in what’s been true and reaching for what’s ahead. I’m unattached.  

The next trapeze is there, perfectly timed, slipping into my hand as I reach into the next stage. 

Let go, trust, and grow. 

Life happens here.
