Transition is defined as a process or period in which something undergoes a change and passes from one state, stage, form, or activity to another. Reflecting on the 15 months I spent working at PULSE Institute prompts a myriad of thoughts and feelings. Like the PULSE frame that is the core of the company’s programs and work, my thoughts span the different time zones of the past, present and future. I appreciate the opportunities, learnings and experiences it provided me. It represented the chance to grow as a person on all levels – mind, body, emotion and spirit – in additon to meet and spend time with many amazing people.
What I know for sure is PULSE is a reflection of Nancy Love – her openness, intellect, creativity and gifted ability for making the complex simple and enabling others. I learned so much about myself and the business of human development. It afforded me the opportunity to to act upon my knowledge and thinking, thereby building and more fully integrating reflective-action capabilities. During and after, the journey uncovered past events, provoking learning about what is important to me in the present. These lessons form the basis of my criteria for being committed to do what it takes to get what I want in my life.
Overall, my time with PULSE and the transition away from it mirrors the many dichotomies faced in life. The dreams versus reality; hopes and fears, uplifting successses and painful disappointments. Regardless, the experience stretched and taught me valuable lessons in preparation for what’s next. The courage and confidence to take the leap of faith to transition onto a new path. One enriched with new discoveries, learnings and contributions to others in whatever feasible and doable way can. With me I have new knowledge, skills and tools for gentle, honest, open, specific talk in the art and science of conversation. Change the words, change the world.
