I guess that’s what life is anyway…..a series of “starts”.
Jobs end, relationships end, projects end, and we must start again. The distance between an ending and making the decision to start again can be dangerous. That space can be a vast ‘void’ – a place that lies in wait for one to get drawn into.
It’s like a hidden monster that desires vulnerable and, what I call, ‘in-between’ people. Let’s just call it the ‘in-between monster’!
If you find yourself hanging out in that place with the monster sniffing you out, it’s Decision Time! But, no one will be there to tell you anything about your decision! It’s all on you, baby! The first step is to realize that you have to make the decision to start – and, guess what? That is the hard part. If you put off making any decision, you will just keep sinking in the quick sand of the ‘in-between’ monster’s lair. Before you know it, you will have lost yourself and any path with a ‘start’ sign will be will be much more difficult to see.
So – the only first decision you have, is to decide to make the decision to start! If you find that your chosen path is not taking you where you thought it would, then, just start again! There is no finite number of how many times you can start………it’s your choice. If you decide to start again and make a change, look at it as an opportunity and not the result of another failure. Just because you started again doesn’t mean you are a failure. You’re human!
The only consistent thing in life is ‘Change’.
Accept this, and you will sail on smoother seas. Things will end, but survivors will start again!
Just a thought …
