New beginnings are such a gift - from a new baby, to a new relationship or friendship, a new job, new home, new project or new phase of life. But most of us miss the gift because instead of savoring the process, creating the space needed to allow things to unfold and emerge... we rush in, put pressure on ourselves to hit the ground running and don't take the space needed. And the foundation of the new thing is not strong enough to endure.
Instead of savoring the experience we stress out during it.
In relationship, we rush in to intimacy too fast and give our bodies and hearts away before the relationship foundation is strong enough. We so desire to be safe, loved and to know it 'will work out' we miss the dance of growing intimacy.
In jobs, we start new ones right away instead of giving ourselves the space between to decompress and regenerate. So we leave one job exhausted and start the next one depleted, because the system 'needs us"
In giving birth, we go back to work weeks or a few months later, because we live in a system that doesn't honor human life force, the mother or the need to be nurtured.
In new projects, new homes, and any new beginning, we don't give ourselves the space to settle in and let things unfold and emerge, to savor the experience. We stress the whole way through to get it done, missing the beauty.
In finishing school or finishing a project we complete one milestone and think we are supposed to have it all figured out to start the next thing now.
This is systemic. Inside the systems and inside of ourselves. Causing huge amounts of stress, and pressure by truncating the space needed for endings and beginnings ... such precious sacred time.
