Transitions and Transformations

Lately, I've had so many moments that have stretched me, pushed me, bumped me, and at times they have knocked me down.  While it has been intense lately, I'm still going through major moments of transitions and transformations.  Things are unfolding even as I write these words.

Often we ask for things and we seek things out, but they don't come packaged in the way we expect.  All too often, we look for them in a prepackaged box, only to discover that this is not how they arrive.  When this happens, we often miss them because in our own human insight, if it isn't what we are looking for, we don't see it.

About a year ago, I got a call at the last minute to go down and do a computer install job.  It was on a Sunday and I thought, sure - why not?  I was struggling for income and work at the time.  When I went down to the work site, I saw that it was very chaotic and everyone was trying to figure it out, while trying to train people such as myself.  Little did I realize that this day would open up into so much more for me and become a very strong source of income and fulfillment.  I thought I would never find work that was fun to do and something I looked forward to getting up in the morning and working on.

Out of that moment, I began to get many different experiences that allowed me to push and stretch my boundaries.  Places I traveled to pushed me in seeing new things in a way that I would never have imagined.  I found out that I had a passion to help teach and train others unlike I had ever realized.  It was a great time of transition and transformation, even if at times it was very stressful and difficult.  I didn't realize the transition and transformation was going on at the time, until I could step back many months later and take a look.

Now, I'm at another stage of transition and transformation in my life.  This one has not gone as expected and I miss what I was previously doing.  I've had some moments where I wanted to chuck it all in and say enough is enough.  I've had moments where I can see the bigger picture and so the difficulties I perceive are corralled into their cage for now.  I will let them be what they are and proceed on in my life.

Again though, what may very likely be some answers to my prayers to the universe, may actually have shown up.  They are not appearing in a form that I was looking for, but they are there waiting for me to get rid of all my perceived beliefs and opinions.  Once again, I'm reminded that what we desire or need or seek for our life does not always come in the box we design.  Often times it comes in the box that we need.
