I once had conversation with a close friend about my relationship at the time.
I'm not sure where she heard the following quote but it stuck with me.
It was: People are in our lives for A Reason, A Season or A Lifetime.
Although you may have heard that before but at the time I thought it was pretty profound.
If you look at your current or past relationships, you will most likely find it falls into one of those three places. After thinking about it, I realized it can apply to many different areas of our lives.
This recently came to my mind as I decided to move into a new season in my life with my career. It can be scary and bring on thoughts and feelings of fear and vulnerability.
It can also bring on excitement about what the next chapter may bring It's very interesting to watch the direction the mind wants to take.
It always seems to be primarily fear for most of us. Why is that the case? I suspect it's because change puts us in survival mode. Our brain begins to freak out.
However, I found thinking about it in this way takes the pressure off. It allows for change to become more curious and interesting. It allows space for the freedom to create and for possibilities to present themselves.
Such a better place to be.
If you find yourself getting stressed out about you relationships, careers, or what's next, consider this may be a season in your life that is temporary.
Beautiful thing is you get to decide. If it does not work out the way you want it to, you can find a new reason, make a new season and decide if you want it to become a lifetime.
