Life, like the seasons, is always changing.
For many of us, the moment(s) arrive when it becomes pretty obvious that our current reality is no longer relevant, wanted, or the direction we want to take any more.
You could be totally out of whack with your core values, you may be doing work that was relevant back then, but makes no sense to you now, you may have reached the end in a special relationship, you may want less striving to become, and more just being.
You may try everything to stop the shift hitting the fan: you could play maybe someday with yourself for a year or two, tell yourself on good days that things aren’t that bad, perhaps try and convince yourself that when the time is right then you will get to work on the change.
You may hold on tighter to try and keep things the way they are because you don’t know if you have the resilience to clean up after the shift hits the walls (if there is even a clean up at all).
- What are old ways no longer good enough for you?
- If you stay where you are, what could happen?
- If you stay where you are, what won’t happen?
- What are you made of today, that you weren’t aware of this time last year?
It can be scary, the fear of letting go of the old way and taking the first step into the unknown. I get it, we don’t want to think when we make a shift, we might get it wrong, we might make a mistake, fall, fail or go down a path that perhaps isn’t the right one.
But still, it’s only when you embrace that shifts happen (that are going to come out in some way whether you like it or not) can you learn all that you are made of.
