Transitions Are The Continuous Process Of Change
We start out living with our parents and going to school and making friends in life. Our parents may have to relocate and we will have to go to a new home, make new friends and get used to our new surroundings. We continue to grow and learn and become more mature acting human beings. We learn from others everyday that we are alive on Earth and hopefully we will put our talents to good use.
Going To College
Leaving home for the first time is a large transition in any young persons life. You will have to get used to living with a roommate or two if you decide to live in the dorm. You will feel homesick until you start to make some friends in college. You will have to do your own cooking and clean up after yourself and conduct yourself as a young adult. You will have to manage your time wisely and study for test and get your assignments in on time. Hopefully you will have a fulfilling job that will take you far in life and that will help better the lives of others.
You have dated the love of your life for one year and you have decided to set the wedding date. Getting married is a big responsibility in life as you will have to learn to give and take to make your marriage work. You will get in arguments once in awhile and you will have to agree on compromises.
Buying Your First Home
Do not spend more than what you can afford on a home. A big mortgage will drown you in debt for the rest of your life. You can find an older home that is reasonably priced and well maintained as a good starter home. Older homes are constructed of much better materials and most of them have beautiful woodwork compared to newer home and they have more character and charm about them.
Having A Baby
Before you have a baby make sure you are financially sound as it takes a lot of money to a raise a child into adulthood. You should definitely send your children to college if you want them to be successful and be able to support themselves in life. Each parent should help raise a child and contribute equally to the child’s life.
The average person has 11.7 jobs in their lifetime. New jobs should offer a step up for advancement or you might as well keep you old job. Relocating because of a new job can be very costly. You must think will my spouse be able to get a job also if we move. If you have children you might not want to move until the end of their school year.
Going To Assisted Living
If you need help with things and you do not think you can manage to do what you want to in your home you may want to consider assisted living. You may have health problems or maybe you are not steady on your feet anymore. None of us ever want to leave our home but that time will come for all of us eventually.
God And Transitions
Life is full of transitions some of them are joyful and others are painful. We let go of the familiar things in are life and we venture into the unknown. If you are going through a transition ask God for help and praise and thank him for God will amaze you by his presence in your life. We will have many changes in our lives and God will help keep us on the right path that will help everyone the most.
Deuteronomy 31 : 6
Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them, for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee, he will not fail thee, not forsake thee.
Philippians 4 : 6 – 7
Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
