Why Celebrate Your Breakdowns?

Any transition serious enough to alter your definition of self will require not just small adjustments in your way of living and thinking but a full-on metamorphosis.   ~ Martha Beck

How would you think about your life and world events differently if you saw breakdowns as worthy of celebration rather than something to be feared, distrusted or avoided?

Okay, it’s true. It’s hard to celebrate something that doesn’t FEEL good. If they did they wouldn’t be called “breakdowns”.  And when you’re in the middle of one it’s hard to see beyond it to the gift it has in store for you. That takes faith.

You may be experiencing a significant breakdown right now – a job loss, divorce, serious medical diagnosis, fire or flood taking your home away, loss of a loved one, or financial crisis. Those are tough breakdowns for sure and they are not to be wished upon anyone. But they happen. 

How Do You Get Through It?

Make your breakdown be the catalyst that leads you to your golden moment. Make your breakdown matter. 

Find a meaning that gives you power and the momentum to move forward. Find your purpose. Let your breakdown use you to build your Encore or Sexy Second Act Career. Create a life that enriches you, fulfills you, and rewards you – like NO KIDDING – for the courage it took for you to stay the course.

You can let your breakdown break you, or you can grit your teeth, hang tough, and come shining through your personal dark night of the soul. You have overcome. Celebrate your emergence into the light. Celebrate growing your wings. Celebrate flying higher than you ever thought you could.
