Our thermostats may read differently. When we enter a new place, resurrect an old alliance, or begin anew in an unfamiliar direction, how we all experience this may vary. Your temperature may be set on 65, and mine on 55. I am not sure if I should bring a scarf, a sweater, or wear a cotton t shirt. Of course, we all need to feel comfortable when entering a new “place.” Usually, though, we don’t! It’s in the discomfort that we are growing, expanding and evolving.
With different degrees, it’s often difficult for people to find equilibrium, maybe at first. In jobs, relationships, and alliances of any kind. Someone may have to turn it down a few notches, while the other may have to turn it up a bit, until we reach a state of compromise and ease. But there is always a choice to be made, and, most importantly, a willingness. If we get really lucky, it happens rather quickly. Great things, though, take energy, time and desire.
In every area of life, we all travel at different speeds, varying levels of intensity. None of us are exactly the same. What matters is that there is truly a measure of willingness and maturity to “give it a go” or not. My guess is that at the end of every day, what we most want is to be heard, understood, respected and appreciated. And to acknowledge whether or not we are committed to adjusting our “temperatures.” If not, it’s okay. We are continuously adjusting to something, somewhere or someone, this is part of life!
Have a peaceful, fun and evolutionary week, if these can all be accomplished at once!
