A Collection of Realities
I spoke to an old friend recently who is going through a divorce. We were talking about what happened and how he knew when it was finally over. “There wasn’t any one thing that ended it. It was just a collection of realities.”
That phrase made me think about the how often that is true when we are contemplating changes or transitions. Whether it’s something as difficult as deciding to divorce or as awesome as accepting a dream job that is located across the country. Occasionally there is a “lightning bolt” moment that makes it clear that it is time to change tack. But more often clarity comes after we sift through and piece together a lot of little “realities” into a picture that makes the path forward undeniable.
So what realities are tugging at your head and heart these days? What pieces are coming together and clearing your path forward? I’d love to hear about them!
