The last few weeks have been a time of transition for me: I completed my book tour, packed up my apartment and put everything in storage, said goodbye to family and friends, and moved (temporarily) to Guatemala. I spent the first two nights at a very nice resort while I looked at potential long-term places to stay. And yesterday I transitioned to a small hut in the jungle.

The thing that makes most people nervous about transitions is the unknown. Is everything going to work out? Will I be happier, more at peace, more energetic, etc.? What if I don’t like how it all ends up? What if I fail?

I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t have any stress about all these changes. But I didn’t have a ton of stress over it. What helps me is that I look at each change as a new adventure filled with possibilities.

So, completing the book tour means that now I can start writing the next book. Moving out of my apartment in San Francisco means that there is going to be a great place for me to live when I get back. And moving to Guatemala is giving me the chance to experience a different way of life and make new friends.

How to you handle the transitions in your life?
