It’s the eve of The Tuesday again: the day after Labour day that signals the practical “new year”. A year ago on this evening I wrote a post about this time of year, this day in particular. WOW! It is crazy eery how everything I wrote back then seems to apply even more to this year, even though so many things are different. A whole new set of circumstances is at play for myself and many of you, but the point of that post seems to ring true even more now. My suggestion, there’s not a whole lot more to say, so be sure to click here and read that post. 🙂 If you want you could just read it, listen to the song, and call it day, it pretty much sums things up. (At the bottom of it you’ll also see how I promised a “Fear of success” posting, and it took eleven months – cheesh :-S )
Still, there is merit in being current though, so a few new comments. So much has happened in the past year, the past season. Yet, here we sit, on the cusp of so many new adventures. The most amazing thing is, that most of the adventures that will come from Tuesday’s starting point can’t be seen right now. They may even be unfathomable. A new path, a different approach, a new opportunity, a new relationship, new travel, a new life. There’s also endless possibilities of what is already at hand, jobs could change, homes could change, relationships could change, plans could change. With all the ups and downs of balance in the past 12 months, what we can take away though, is that balance will still play a role in the year and the adventures to come. As I did a year ago, I encourage us all to remember, that we’re all in this together.
Remember, you can turn to people in your community – whether it be friends, family, co-workers, teammates, classmates. You can also hold them accountable and tell them they can turn to you. Sometimes we assume people know they can turn to us, but we don’t say it. If we actually mean it, then we should say it. Adventures can create unbalance, and that’s okay, it is exciting, and we can learn from it. Adventures, learning, life, all require some unbalance. Our community’s job is to help bring the balance back when we need it. You’ll be there, I’ll be here, and we’ll get this show on the road come Tuesday.
