I’ve recently made some rather radical changes to my life – left my job, moved out of state, started a new business. And I can’t help but notice this niggling feeling that I half expect everything to fall apart. Sure, I might move things along a little. Maybe even have some success. But sooner or later, it’s all going to fall apart.
So, I dug a little deeper to see why I might think this. Doing a quick review of my life, sure enough, I found examples of times when things did fall apart. In fact, I realized, it happened over and over again. Hmmm…over and over again….
Then it dawned on me. Cycles. To everything there is a season, a beginning and an end. Beginning this new cycle, expecting that it will go on forever, is unrealistic. There will come a time when it needs to shift into something else – when I need to shift into something else.
I can’t avoid the inevitable, but what I can do is commit to giving my best to this part. And to know that, at some point, it will need to become something else. And for that to happen, the old has to fall away. Maybe by consciously partaking in the dismantling at that point, I will avoid the feeling of “failure”, and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment instead.
I’m game to give it a try. So, here goes something!
