NOVEMBER MONTHLY 
TTN CHAPTER MEETING
EMBRACING TRANSITIONS AS OPPORTUNITIES
Do you ever get a nudge or a feeling of restlessness that urges you to change your life in some way? A longing to listen to that inner calling that you say you plan to get to sooner or later but just haven't found the time? 

Transitions can be big or small. Our lives are filled with transitions , whether it is retirement, seeking more meaningful work, divorce, losing a loved one, older age or becoming an empty nester. While some changes are painful, others can be joyous. But with each transition there is an opportunity to re-think our lives and how we want to live. If we let these opportunities slip by, then the days, weeks and years just keep going on and our dreams risk going unfulfilled. 

What would you love to do that you aren't doing now? What matters most to you?
Have you lost any momentum in moving forward? How do you feel about this time in your life? Let's talk. Sometimes it takes others to help nudge us along. Join us for a conversation on November 13

When:   Monday, November 13  6:00-7:30
Where:  50 California Street; 10th Floor, SF

YEAR BY THE SEA 
A Woman's Story of Transformation
YEAR BY THE SEA, a woman's story of transformation opening in the Bay Area at Landmark Shattuck and Opera Plaza this Friday 9/22.
 
It's based upon the NYT best-selling memoir A Year by the Sea by Joan Anderson who has spoken in the past to TTN about reclaiming and redefining one's life and joy - particularly in midlife.
 
Hailed as "the perfect antidote to Hollywood's blockbusters, YEAR BY THE SEA chronicles empty-nester Joan Anderson's decision not to follow her relocated husband to Kansas. Instead, she retreats to Cape Cod to rediscover herself and redefine her life. Plagued with guilt, she questions her decision until stumbling upon a spirited mentor, Joan Erikson - author and wife of famed psychologist Erik Erikson, who coined the term "identity crisis." With a support group that includes her literary agent and a host of locals, Joan learns to embrace the ebb and flow of life - ultimately discovering the balance between self and sacrifice, obligation and desire.
