Santa Fe Chapter  |  Newsletter   |   February 2018
Santa Fe TTN is organized and led entirely by volunteers.
COORDINATOR'S CORNER

Nathalie Herrman 
Connect, discover, and impact. These are core tenets of TTN. We connect through Transition Peer Groups and our monthly programs and events. We discover shared interests, new opportunities, and lessons and blessings through the challenge and reward of personal transition. And we impact each other's lives, our families, and the community at large.

This month, we're taking it to the next level. We're committed to deeper connections in every arena, new discovery in ourselves and others, and conscious, collective impact that makes a positive difference in the world.
 
 
 
 
MY TRANSITION STORY: 
"Scary at first; Messy in the middle; Beautiful in the end" by Amy Yockel 
Amy Yockel 

The subject of transitions and transformation has become a real-life, real-time study for me as I have been amidst my own for several years now. In 2010, I set out on a journey of self-reclamation. Seeking to create a life of meaning, to find purpose and to create community. Leaving behind a successful 20yr career in marketing, a relationship with a wonderful man, my home of 17 years, family and friends. Eventually leaving Upstate NY and moving to Santa Fe. Throughout those years, I spent a lot of time fantasizing about the day it would all be "over and done" and life would once again feel familiar. Momentarily forgetting the intention of my journey. Finally coming to the realization that "over and done" doesn't exist and learning, as the years roll by, that life is a series of ongoing transitions. Some intentional and welcomed, others seemingly thrust upon us against our will.
