Isn’t it ironic – you set out to achieve something and when you get there you realise that you have grown and evolved so much as a person that it is no longer what you yearn for. It then takes courage to admit this, take stock and reflect on what is important to you, what you need and what needs to shift or change. This is not a failure, it is simply that you now see your life differently and that what fulfilled you at the outset no longer serves you in the way it once did.

Growth comes from acknowledging that life is not static, it is a constant flow, a movement that brings you back to who you are deep within as you unfold and let go of that which no longer is who you thought you were – the you that shaped what you set out to achieve and the you that reached that point ironically no longer exists as it once did because as you have grown and are now experiencing life from a different perspective. And this feeds an illusion that we have been unable to achieve success or happiness and that we have to strive and drive to get somewhere when in fact it is always inside us all the time just waiting to be connected to and lived in full.

One thought on “Ironic”

  1. Truly appreciate these words of wisdom… Are there really any ‘goal posts’? Or are we willing to acknowledge that in the process of living a life with awareness, we are always learning – things we were once attached to can naturally come to light and may well be let go, thereby opening the way all the more deeply to what you’ve shared Rachel, that there really is nowhere we are ‘getting to’. We are actually coming back to discover all that has been there within us all along…
