September has always been my favorite month. It has the feeling of change, with the temperature starting to cool down, the crisp blue skies and the subtle change of the leaves. The month begins with the end of the summer to a more routine existence. It signifies a new beginning of sorts and I have always considered it to be the start of a new phase, whether you want to or not.
This transition from summer to fall comes quite naturally and requires us to change the pace of our lives. It requires a bit more focus. We become more scheduled and systematic in our routines, and we automatically adjust to this change without giving it much thought.
If only all change could feel so normal.
There are many times that change can surprise you and the adjustments can be difficult. We can try our best to prepare ourselves for the different aspects of life, but as we all know, life is unpredictable. The best laid plans in life don’t always work out and dealing with the emotional aspect of this change can be daunting.
These changes or surprises can impact your financial plan and need to be addressed in order to keep your financial goals aligned. The ability to foresee all of the changes in one’s life is impossible. However, meeting and discussing your concerns when these issues occur can significantly help with the transition. No one likes to be out of control. And most importantly, having a partner to help you make the necessary adjustments during these times is significant to endure this phase.
We all go through difficult times in life. But it is always important to realize with these difficult times and transitions, there are ways to get help and guidance. You do not need to take on the burden all by yourself. Reach out and let other’s help guide you through the changes.
Planning is just one part of your life that needs to be addressed during the different transitions. But time has a way of helping you through ups and downs of life. Keep the lines of communication open to those who are here to help.
