Freedom is the ultimate goal of many people and you know what…when we loose something we are freed from it. Something wonderful was opened up when someone said, the stuff you own starts owning you. The something is true in many relationships, places, attachements of any kind. We are creatures of habit and it can be difficult to create a habit of change and growth. One of the ultimate goals of many is to grow through out their entire life.
And sometimes we become fixed, we grow solid and sedimented into our relationships and we mourn them when they are lost. But what we often forget is that we are suddenly invited by the world and life to reinvent something new to replace that lost content. Life abhors a vacuum and we are able to invent anything that we can envision. Life is wonderful for that.
When there is nothing we are before a kind of blank canvas, in our case that canvas is our life, our business, our relationships that we had before. Now you have the opportunity to invent something, a style, a product, a new way of behaving that allow us to grow and create the world that we really want.
It may take great courage, or just great energy to break out of that mould that we find ourselves in. However every body has that spark inside themselves, perhaps in your team or your very self. The spark is always burning deep in our soul and it wants to create that freedom every day no matter how sure you are that your life is never going to change there is a way to open yourself up to growth and making something new….
So the next time you loose something or someone, remember the thing that you are feeling is not bad it is the vacuum that needs filling. It is a call to action to make a better life for yourself, to create the thing you always wanted to do, have, be to take its place.
GO make something new…
