    Hello, Eh!... Isn't that what you expected?... Now that I'm in Canada?

    Oh yes, good natured Canadians always get a chuckle out of how we are believed to add Eh... To the end of everything. This is Isabel Banerjee, checking in with you from Canada, as promised. Our last episode of the Lift As You Climb podcast... I told you I was packing up the mic, packing up the podcast equipment, putting it in a container... And I was catching a plane to Canada.

    I'm here, checking in... To let you know that I'm safely in the loving, supportive arms of my family and my friends. I am putting together a new life. If you've been following the podcast, you know, episodes have been about change. I've been sharing my own journey, about change... And what I've learned about change in my life. How to do change, how to decode change, how to grieve change, how to change my mind.

    I've made a collection of those episodes to make it easy for those of you, that are going through change yourself... Or thinking about change, or wondering how to make change easier than it might have been in the past.

    I'm wide open, I'm transparent with you to share... That change is complicated, and it sneaks up and surprises you with all kinds of emotions, and unexpected twists and turns.

    And as I promised, even though I packed up the podcast equipment... I wanna let you know that I'm still here working through my change. That I'm the research subject for some of you. Now, I cannot start to record episodes effectively for a little while. Cause my cargo hasn't arrived. My lease starts on November 1st, for my new place... I'm gonna unpack boxes, and reconnect equipment and sign up for services, and jump through lots of hoops!

    But what I can do for you, in the meantime, is that I am a massing, an incredible lineup of guests... Experts on change... Because they are professionals in areas connected with change. Because they are real living human beings that faced change and made it their own success story. Together, we're all going to share with you... Ideas, resources, and support.

    So stay tuned, listen up to the collection on the resources already shared. How to decode change, how to grieve change, how to embrace change... When it's okay to change your mind. And I'm gonna be back to you very soon... I promise just a couple of weeks... We're going to have some new content, and we're going to move together... Into the next, and best, role in our lives... So that we can continue to be the success ladders for others, by paving the way forward, holding the torch.

    So very happy to check in with you, and I look forward to talking to you really soon.

    Oh, and by the way... Gonna put the link to that collection, in the show notes, below this episode. So it's handy for you. Please do share that with anyone that you care about who is going through change, struggling with change, contemplating change... Because you might be able to help them... And that's lifting and climbing.

    If you've got some ideas that you would like to share about how to make change more positive and more rewarding... Please send me an email. My contact information is in the show notes, and please recommend guests for the show... Because together, collectively, we can help each other.

    Talk to you soon, Eh!

    Irreconcilable Change

    Irreconcilable Change

    Merriam-Webster dictionary defines irreconcilable difference as the inability to agree on most things or important things.

    In my case, as for many ‘Grey Divorces’, that was the reason cited for the reason to end our marriage; irreconcilable differences.

    No fault, no blame, no list of shortcomings, broken promises, or unrealized dreams, no litany of annoying habits, no explanations, no defense - just two words; irreconcilable differences.

    No long-drawn-out court battle and big legal bills.

    No mudslinging or blame-gaming. We’d done enough of that in the preceding years and realized that accomplished nothing except deepening the rift in our relationship, and making others who loved us uncomfortable.

    Once we accepted that our marriage was no longer providing each of us what we wanted for who we are now, we could move forward as people who still cared about each other.

    We drew up our own settlement terms, consulted with CPAs and employed a mediation lawyer to file the court documents. We accomplished this in weeks, respectfully and co-operatively.

    Divorce is on the rise in my generation.

    Stay tuned over the next few weeks and months as I share from my experience of ‘conscious uncoupling’ and the many facets of change that lead into and through divorce.

    REFERENCES:

    "Gray divorce," also known as "silver splitter" or "diamond divorce," is a term used to refer to the increasing trend of late-in-life divorces. This term first became mainstream in 2004, when AARP published a study on divorce at "midlife and beyond," and is generally used to describe adults aged 50 or older who are going through a separation.

    In 2015, every 10 out of 1,000 couples aged 50 and over got divorced, which was double what their divorce rate had been in 1990. And for those over 65, the increase was even higher — it had roughly tripled in 25 years. In fact, while the overall rate of divorce has continually declined since then, the divorce rate of people over 50 is increasing.

    Why are older people getting divorced? One soon-to-be-divorced woman told me that she sees her life in chapters. And although she thought her current husband would be part of her life through all of them, she now wants to do some of the writing on her own, and perhaps, one day, with another partner. She means no harm to her husband, and wants to free him up to find true happiness in his next chapters as well.

    Couples aren't simply "drifting apart" over time anymore. One or both people in the marriage are making an overt choice to change course for the time they have left. And recognizing that life is short and precious, one or both partners choose what they feel is the most fulfilling path. They tend to believe that, if a marriage is not working for them, it really isn't working for their spouse either. So, they afford themselves the space to gain, or regain, happiness and fulfillment.

    Grieving Change

    Grieving Change

    Eyes wide shut.

    I refused to acknowledge the change that was coming at me like a freight train.

    I refused to take responsibility for my part in this change.

    I lied to myself that everything was just fine. Just a rough patch. Just temporary relationship growing pains.

    Not my idea.

    Not my choice.

    Not the right timing.

    Not the future I planned.

    Not the story I told myself.

    When change is thrust on you, you may react like a drowning woman, fighting, flailing, struggling to breathe between the gasps and sobs. It’s terrifying, dark, and cold.

    It feels like death.

    Been there, done that.

    Flailed and floundered, and at times, grabbing on to others, pulling them under with me.

    But finally, I realized I didn’t want to die or make others suffer through my tempest, and I stopped flailing.

    Strap on your life preserver and listen in as I share how I made it through the rough weather of being dumped by the man I loved, and how I became the storm.

    And while you are ‘weather-watching’, throw out a lifeline to friends who have been swamped by unwelcome, unhappy change and bring a little sunshine back to their lives.

    Change Your Mind Change Your Life

    Change Your Mind Change Your Life

    Change Your Mind.

    Change Your Future.

    Change Your Attitude.

    Change Your Relationship.

    Change Your Relationship With Your Self.

    Change Your Paradigm.

    As women, we've been teased about changing our minds as easily as changing our hair color. The inference is, of course, that we make changes too easily, too often.

    I know this is not true.

    More often, we stay stuck with a choice, made with different expectations that are not or no longer realized.



    Change can be good.

    Change can be necessary.

    Change can be lifesaving - literally.
