Hampton court palace – round the corner from me
It isn’t just that lots of people I know had a bad 2015, it’s the fact that for many of us it was our worst year EVER.
Never have the 4 or 5 people I’ve spoken to about this, been as keen to start afresh in 2016.
What a great human invention is the New Year!
Even odder, for all of us, it’s not been about the normal New Years’ resolutions – get fit, drink more water, get a new job – but about a shift in Being. Perhaps it’s the new mindfulness trend playing in the background but I and my fellow “2015 was a wanker” friends all report more peace, gratitude and resilience since the new year started.
The Landmark Forum says “you can have anything you want for yourself and your life if you create it as a possibility”
This used to puzzle me. But I now see it is about a way of being – which in turn will spark changes in action.
So there is an exercise you do to create possibility in which you get present to the impact the complaint is having on your life. So it might be your crap marriage.. The fact that putting up with this is costing you all joy, satisfaction, love. You feel as low as you can about it…..Out of that you create a new possibility which might be, let’s say, love and connection. Living into that possibility might mean you tin your marriage or work on it. It’s a way, I suppose of creating a mini breakdown for breakthrough.
In conversation with a good coach things can transform in an instant, a simple click. Then it’s just keeping it alive through action, commitment and systems.
Transformation occurs through breakdown. The caterpillar becomes a butterfly.
That’s what my fellow 2015 was a wanker travellers have experienced. The worst moments have given birth to a new way of being.
Breakdown for breakthrough.
