how’s your heart this week?
For some, it has been a week of amazing joy and surprises. Play and adventure.
For others, it has been a week of loss, grief, and crumbling dreams.
In addition to how your external week has been, internally many people are also feeling ‘it’ without really knowing what ‘it’ is.
We can sense that there’s a cycle ending. We can feel the momentum of where we’ve been but we’re not sure where we’re headed. It’s like when the plane begins to make the final turn for descent and landing. Something feels different.
If we look around, we recognize the tension between the old systems which are breaking down (or being broken down) and the new, which aren’t quite here yet. The old ideas, which some are holding onto quite tightly, and the new, which feel a bit chaotic at times.
However, the biggest tension is going on inside of each of us.
This is the tension between the old self and the new self.
Who we’ve been. Who are we becoming.
And here’s the thing. We can’t become the new while holding onto the old.
To step into new ways of being, we can’t do the same old thing. Or, as Einstein is reported to have said: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. If we want things to be different, we have to make different choices.
Change is simple, but it is not always easy.
However, change can start today. Simply by stopping something, starting something, or doing one thing differently.
Pick something small. Pick something doable. And then do it.
Whatcha gonna do?
