Life is a Bowl of Cherries

June 25, 2015

Just like styles are cyclical, so are life’s circumstances. However, there are some experiences that we never want to repeat, but how we handled them the first time around or rather how we didn’t handle them the first time they occurred, may cause certain outcomes to be redundant in our lives.

As much as we look forward to our future, we also fear what it could bring — responsibility, commitment, hard work, uncomfortable situations, and non-productive relationships. These fears cause us to remain motionless to our dreams, leaving us in a dormant state of mind. This in turn creates unwanted recurring behaviors that we choose to reproduce because the outcome is
familiar and sadly, comfortable.

Some recurrent behaviors are nice surprises that softly tickle our noises like a feather. Making us smile and feel the warm and fuzzy of nostalgia. These circles remind us of inclusion and positive friendships that have blessed our lives and we truly enjoy the moment of locking hands and creating a bond with time and spiritual energy. We reminisce as we watch our children play and we laugh about how fast time flies when you are embracing life.

In essence, what is a circle really made of? A ring of roses and a pocket full of posies? A merry-go-round that waltz up and down, as we appreciate the carnival sounds and dancing animals, or a group of friends with whom we confide and who we also entrust their secrets with us?

As much as life changes, it also stays the same. My father use to say, “Once a man, twice a child.” This statement is profound as it generates thoughts of beginnings and endings. I use to think that finality meant sorrow, but in reality, conclusion is necessary. We can never move forward if we don’t recognize that some things must come to an end. Checking items off of the list is just as important as putting them on the list. Every situation has it’s time and place, we just need to learn when it’s time to move to our next level, and take that leap of faith.
