Creation, destruction, creation. It’s the circle of life- all religions and philosophies essentially say the same thing. Meaning that it’s possible to live multiple lives and lifetimes in the contents of your own timespan here on this planet.
It’s usually a scary thing when you see all the pieces of your life that you have to pick up. Except here’s the catch. This time around, when you’re re-creating your life, reforming and reassembling it, you don’t need to keep all the old pieces. You can use this time to figure out the bits you didn’t want, the bits you absolutely adore, and the bits you’re not sure about. It’s a time of reflection. Who do you want to be? What kind of life do you want to lead?
The other scary part is thinking of it in absolute terms. If you think you’re making decisions that shape the rest of your life, yes. But also no. There’s always course correction. It’s always 2 steps forward and 1 step back, 5 paces to the right. So I like to think of it in terms of a 3 year experiments. Because if you think of it in 3 year experiments, then it’s really not so bad. That’s tiny. That’s small. That’s negligible in the grand scheme of things. But it’s still enough time to really try on a new life (pun intended).
So if you could hit the reset button (which you can, by the way, at any point), what would you keep? What would you make different? What would you absolutely adore?
