Transitions in Transition

I originally began this blog as a forum for exploring the transitions I'm facing in my life.  It didn't take long  to realize that I'm the only one who really cares about that.

So I thought, where do I go with this now?  I don't want to go down in the history of blogging as the owner of the most boring and under-read blog ever.

After having a good long think, I realized there are a lot of people facing a lot of transitions in their lives; transitions like mine and transitions I haven't faced.

That's when I had my brainstorm, "I'll write about my transitions sometimes, but I'll also explore other ideas related to life changes and transitions and invite guests writers to share their experiences."

After a more recent good long think, I decided to expand on the idea of transitions and also look at transitions that take place inside of us.  Because after all, a person's life could remain relatively unchanged on the outside for a long time but massive changes could be occurring in that person's mind, heart, thoughts and attitude.

So that's where Transitional-Woman is heading.  I'm looking forward to seeing what my guest posters will share and I'm looking forward to sharing the lessons I'm learning as I muddle through my transitions.

And maybe after another good long think, things will change again.   Who knows?  But in the meantime, contact me if you have a transition you've experienced and would like to share the lessons learned or the struggles you're still wrestling with.

Blogging A to Z Challenge. Today we have T.   


  1. It's always difficult to strike a balance with blogging to know what to write about to get others interested.
    Yours is a mighty interesting topic: everybody goes through changes and transitions in their lives and it's how we deal with them.
    I will contribute a piece about making changes in my life by moving to a different country if you like - once the A-Z is over.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.


    1. I'd enjoy hearing more about your transition. I'll be emailing you soon about the guest post.

  2. Hello, Elizabeth..now I am following you! I will look forward to your transitions posts via RSS feed...thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday...

  3. Just popping in from the A to Z Challenge and like what I see. A very interesting topic. I'll be staying tuned.

  4. I would love to have you as a guest blogger on my blog. Maybe we could switch--you could write about one of the books you've read this year, and I could write about transitions!

    1. Sounds great. I can think of several unique transitions in your life that would be great to share. I'll contact you soon.

  5. Finding that perfect balance is never easy but I find it somewhat invigorating - you're traveling new paths in your blogging you never thought of before! How exciting is that? Looking forward to sharing it along with you.

  6. Elizabeth,

    I love the theme of transitions. So much so that I would love to be a guest poster, at your blog, for one day in August of 2012. My blog tour is set and scheduled for August, but I'd love to add your blog as a stop, because the concept of transitions has played a big role in my life as I approach 50. So let me know!! (My email link is at my blog.)

    1. August sounds good. I will contact you soon. Thanks!

  7. Oh man, transitions. My husband was diagnosed with a terminal illness in 2010. Talk a complete life change!!! I'd love to share how God is carrying me through this dramatic change in our lives. It is definitely the hardest thing I have ever done, but by His grace, I am doing it. :)
