Career Reinvention: Transitions

Join me on the patio this morning as I think about transitions.  This is an amazing morning with low humidity….cool breezes…transitions are in the air.

My new career has been years in the making.  Years of change… from a budding young marketing career after college to 16 years as an educator and now returning to marketing.  I do miss my friends from school, but the freedom to be out and performing something different (which I love) is amazing. To be my own boss, and challenged by learning how to run a small business is incredible.  And who would have thought it was possible after being away for so long, and, yes, at the ripe age of sixty.

As I slowly transition to this new phase, I am enjoying the freedom more and more every day.  I can breathe deep these cool breezes and smile.

Transitions are ribbons running through our lives and tying each moment together.  How we handle transitions is so important.  We can go forward with hopeful expectation or sit shut down.

There was a little anxiety at first, but now just determination to do well and keep this going!  Don’t let age keep you from transitioning to something you may not see as possible.   You just might be surprised like I have been…it’s in the wind…anything is possible.

This week my blog is dedicated to transitions as we go forward together.

Have a joyful Sunday!


  1. I understand every word of this, Pam. I'm still working my 4 days a week as a school psychologist, but have been building my own business (online boutique and blog) for 3 1/2 years in my off hours. I love the challenge and the thrill of so many new experiences and opportunities. I am so excited for you as you embark on this new chapter.
    xx, Heather

  2. Ahhh, transition. Here I am about to turn 60 and beginning over in a new place and trying to figure out what I will be all about here. Waiting, listening for direction, and trying to rest in the stillness of the in between.

    Blessings to you as you enter this exciting time of life!

  3. Great post Pam – it's definitely all about attitude – embracing change and believing in yourself and what you have to offer. You are never too old to go on a new adventure! ~ Leanne
