Why I Started This Blog

“When One Door Closes, Another Door Opens… But It’s Hell in the Hallway

I started writing this blog in 2008. At that point in my life, I had been through so many transitions, moves (I moved 27 times over about 10 years), changes, twists and turns… that I thought, maybe there are other people who are in the “hallway” and would like company. For me, the feeling that I am alone, with no one who understands me, is the worst. I feel like I am the only person in the world who feels lost, confused, lonely, afraid.

But when social media came along, I could see the potential for feeling connected to others. While time has shown social media to be both positive and negative in terms of its utility for good, it’s hard to deny its power for people to connect to like-minded individuals.

Your Experience May Vary

The topics in this blog are connected even if they don’t seem to be. From my perspective, transitions come in several flavors. While they are interrelated, we often don’t recognize the ramifications of one change on the bigger picture of our lives.

While there is career information here, there’s also information on personal development. The thoughts reflect of my journey. I can only hope that others might benefit from it. It nothing else, I hope you will feel connected. After all, we are in this together.
