22 Feb What Goes Around Comes Around
Just like a helix of DNA, life is like a spiral staircase.
Around and around we go, experiencing and then re-experiencing–but in a new way, with a new perspective that affords us the opportunity to evolve.
Evolve: develop gradually, especially from a simple to a more complex form.
Revolve: move in a circle on a central axis.
For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
—Benjamin Button, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Last night a friend shared this awesome quote with me because I recently made the decision to let go of a major piece of myself in order to make space for new opportunities. Trusting the process of letting go and starting fresh is imperative. But starting fresh always carries with it the knowledge and experience of what has happened before.
Buddhists call it the wheel of life. We move from one phase to another experiencing different layers of who we are. Building blocks. Structure. DNA. Life. Step by step we make the choices we want based on the choices we’ve made. The experiences we have had guide us to become all we are meant to be.
