I had a look back over the years of my life last week, after posting about Chinese New Year and how things seemed to happen around then for me. What I discovered has really made me stop and think. Here’s the pattern:
1989 – Year of the Snake. I applied to graduate school, freeing myself from a job that I hated, and opening the door to who I would become.
1990 – Year of the Horse. I began to graduate school.
2001 – Year of the Snake. Out of the blue, I suggested we move to Hong Kong, though I was happy living in Australia.
2002 – Year of the Horse. We moved to Hong Kong, where we would live for six years, and adopt our two wonderful children.
2013 – Year of the Snake ????
I have this sense that I going to be deciding some major change this year, and that it will sweep away all the cobwebs that have gathered over the last five years. I can’t predict yet what it will be. But that sense of change is bubbling away in me, is there with me as I run my favorite trails, is there in the songs I’m playing on my iPod about becoming who I am.
Funny thing – the other times that major change happened, I didn’t expect them. I just made them happen. Now, I just have to try to blur my focus a little bit and let what will be happen.
I know all this sounds a bit like crazy mumbo jumbo rambling, but it is what it is.
Watch this space…
