Charles Feildelson Jr., Yale professor, said that “Life is a series of little deaths out of which life always returns.” Most of us, at least by midlife, have discerned the truth about this affirmation. Life is comprised of loses, some gut wrenching and perhaps others more benign, but with each transition or death something new is brought forth. We all know the adage “when one door closes another opens”. However, in the midst of transition, we often feel like we are trapped in a doorless and windowless room, dark, alone and hopeless.
