Just as our earth experiences change throughout the year, our lives experience change. These seasons can challenge us and encourage us to grow and prosper in ways we never imagined. Whether you are dating someone new, experiencing a breakup, planning your wedding, expecting a baby, losing a job, or starting a new one, your life may be in a pivotal season.
I am blessed to currently be in a season of change. For years I have been toying with the idea of leaving my practice and partnering with one (or more) of the many talented individuals I have come to know and admire. Meeting after meeting, the easy answer kept me from jumping ship. There was always an excuse why the time wasn’t quite right.
Just weeks before my baby girl was born, I learned of some unsettling news that would normally propel someone into making a change; however, I again chose to stay on for the easier transition back to work life after maternity. My profession kept evolving, pulling me more into a space of nutrition and pregnancy care, yet my environment was not conducive. I tried to marry the two, but I found I was trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Let’s just say the round hole wasn’t large enough to fit the square peg.
A few days ago, we began making the announcement that I will be shifting location, as well as shifting focus. While I will remain practicing chiropractic, I will be be able to follow the natural lead of this season into more nutrition work and in supporting expectant parents on their journey to an incredible birth experience.
Embracing these seasons is the best way to appreciate the experiences we have endured while looking forward with anticipation and hope.
