This is a time of year when we get together with loved ones and friends. We make some time to step away from the usual daily routine and amidst all the celebrations and festivities, we catch up with ourselves. Throughout the year we have all moved forward and made decisions. Some of those decisions may have been big ones. It is human nature to make decisions using a mixture of our instinct, intellect and past experiences.
If you have made a big decision this year, it has an emotional base. It could be that joy formed the basis of your choice, it could have been events beyond your control or you simply felt the time was right to make a change? Whatever the reason, there will be a corresponding emotional impact on you.
When we are brave enough to make a big decision, and follow through on the changes that it brings, then we understandably have expectations that all will magically flow from this point. However, life being the ever-changing scene that it is, we will still be presented with challenges and further decisions.
At any point during this time, a loving supportive hand is ready for you at TheCircle from one of the gifted readers. There are many pieces in our life’s jigsaw puzzle and sometimes an objective eye can help you find the missing pieces.
We all need time to absorb changes, because from the big initial change you have made, many others will ripple out. Sometimes these will not be expected. You don’t know how you will feel or how others around you will react. All of these smaller ripples need to be absorbed, as well as the big changes flowing through. It is a loving kindness to try and give yourself as much space and time as possible to absorb and process these changes and ripples. There is an awful lot going on and it can seem overwhelming at times. Giving yourself space and time to reflect and see how things are now, is being lovingly supportive to you and those around you. Also, it helps if you can spare a little time to spend a few minutes doing an activity that makes you ‘feel like you’. Something that helps your heart to smile and soothes you.
The changes are moving you forward to show even more of your wonderful character and talents. Reflection allows you the space and time to see just far you have come. Then you can relax and enjoy all the festivities at this time of year.
