A life well-lived consists of a myriad of experiences. Goals, ideas, and philosophies will appear, have their time with us, then morph into something new and different. There will be many destinations, departures, arrivals, countless thousands, no millions of details that cause a life to indeed be a complex event. It is necessary to learn how to embrace change if we are to thrive in this reality.

Our Life is A Story

If we were to use the analogy of one’s life as being a book, then it is safe to say this book will have many chapters. Author and philosopher Joseph Campbell said, “It is not until the later stages of one’s life that you look back and see that each experience has a symmetry and reason and fits perfectly into the fabric of your life.”

There is no stability, only movement. Yet most people live their lives focusing on some arrival point. The happy marriage, financial security, a fulfilling career, abundant health, spiritual awakening. However, all the above are not only arrival points, but departure points as well.
