Life's Changing Seasons

Life's Changing Seasons

By Stephanie Seferian

When it comes to growing up, we tend to believe it's only for children. Adults, then, are assumed to be fully grown. But even us "grownups" are constantly changing, maturing, and evolving (and often at a rapid pace). Such inner changes also run concurrent with external ones that pop up as we move through our respective life seasons, day after day. If embracing change as life's only true constant is downright difficult, getting stuck underneath heaps of possessions that served our out-of-date versions makes such an embrace even harder. And what about jobs that are no longer fulfilling, relationships that are no longer harmonious, and life views that are no longer synchronous with the person we are evolving into? It's likely enough to make your head spin. Today I speak with life coach Jenny Cheifetz about loosening our grips on the past, embracing changes in both our lives and in ourselves, and letting go of our need to hold onto what was. In the first part of our conversation we speak on possessions; in the second, we discuss first steps to decluttering the big intangibles we know on the soul level we've outgrown.   Here's a preview: [2:30] The internal pause: how and why to conduct a needs assessment [6:30] Why attaching emotion to possessions ultimately does us a disservice [11:30] 'Store it at the store' is about to become your new mantra and here's why [15:00] How to conduct a needs assessment with with your big but intangible baggage [19:00] Thoughts on 'flow' as a state of being, plus why we as humans are prone to white-knuckle grips -- Thank you to our sponsors!
