In Praise Of Transition

  We are all susceptible to change in our lives. I have been very humbled and grateful for the many changes that have taken place for me throughout my life. It is said that some of the hardest decisions in life are made for you. In other words, if you wait to long to make a decision, it is sometimes made for you. That being said, I have also learned that many times we become like that monkey who sticks his hand in the hole to get the banana, only to realize that because of the shape of the banana, he may never get to eat it. Do you get where I am going with this?

   In short, I am saying that some paths just run their course and then we have to turn in another direction and start again. Preferably where there is more light and more space to become stronger and open to the new. This can apply to anything from relationships, business dealings, emotions, and even friends. It goes without saying that we have to experience this over and over and over again in this life. No one gets a pass and no one gets the instruction booklet on how to navigate it. It shows up without warning as well as with plenty of warning, should you choose to listen.

   Mental housekeeping is so essential. I liken it to the ancient art of Feng Shui. When the things are int he right order, every thing just seems to flow correctly. However, if too much of the wrong energy is piled up into one area, it can damage the entire space little by little. Have you ever been to someone's house and they have so little and it just feels so open and relaxing? Then you go to another house and you feel like there are things in every corner imaginable? That is exactly why we have to take stock of what is fruitful and forwarding us, versus what is just causing us to drag and miss the fireworks, so to speak.

   In closing, we really all need a transition or two, or three, just to feel a new tingle here and there. Instead of taking the same route to work, go a different way. Instead of saying no to something, say yes next time. Instead of telling yourself that you could never change a certain thing in your life, just let it flow in another direction and just see what happens. There is always something on the other side of our comfort zones. It's begging to be exposed. However, if you choose to stifle it, the possibility of it breaking out on it's own, is not too far from reality. I can honestly say, that when I flow like the water through a challenging thing or time, I almost always discover calmer waters or a new frame of mind. I am about to get into my kayak!!!!!!! The tide is rushing in. Happy flowing to you all..
