Transitions always occur around my birthday. Have you noticed that too?
A few months ahead, I start to (metaphorically) itch. Inevitably, several aspects of my life, ones I used to love, begin to feel like a prized shirt mistakenly washed in hot water – too tight. It might be my connection with a health care provider, a business consultant, or a personal relationship that needs to change.
I tend to be insanely loyal. It’s not easy for me to release what I’ve previously cherished even when signs appear like newborn criticism, irritation, or anger.
In the past, I didn’t release these elements gracefully. I needed to create a drama to inflame my righteousness and thus buoy my courage.
Now, when the clues appear, I know I’m shedding so I can step lightly into the new. I do my best to let go with kindness. I honor all the goodness I’ve received from the person or situation without making a ruckus about my new-found infantile irks.
I understand, it’s time to step into uncertainty.
