Change: The act or instance of making or becoming different.
Transition: The process or period of changing from one state or condition to another.
Transitions are an inevitable part of the human experience. Some transitions are small, some are big. Some are expected and others greet us unexpectedly. Some transitions are welcome and others catch us completely off guard.
Our response to the changes and transitions we face can be varied. We can rush to a resolutions, we can go inward and deepen our journey, we can avoid change at all costs or we can change by choice.
