What's shifted for me personally is understanding, clarity... It's almost like the pieces of a puzzle of the questions I've been asking. It's like the pieces of the puzzle all started to fit into place and kind of makes sense.
I actually told my clients this, which is really quite funny because I always say, I use this term because I love climbing mountains right. I love to climb. I see a mountain and I just want to get up and see the view. So this is the analogy I use: in order to get to your goal, in order to get to that destination and see the view, you have to take the stepping stones to get there.
Sometimes you don't know the way, you don't know the route, but you have to take the first step and you might go off path here. If you recognise that didn't work, you go back on path and eventually you figure it out, and then you finally get to the top of that mountain. And then when you get to the top, you see this awesome view that was well worth the effort and energy that it took to get there. You feel so good but then you can see beyond that and there's so much more.
So I see it as a journey. I see it as though it's almost part of the journey, in the becoming, you have to overcome. And that's kind of how it felt for me. To quote bring Brené Brown, "There's the messy middle.
And that I did not expect that to be a roller coaster ride like it was. Yeah but that's what it was.
