New Schedule Disruption

Introducing new things into Life, such as a new job, new relationship, or new hobby, often disrupts the things already there.  When starting the new activity, a new routine needs to be established, sometimes at the expense of activities already established.  When the new activity doesn’t have a regular schedule, this disruption is more severe. Some things are bound to get lost in the shuffle.

I have spoken of this before.  This is a tenet of transition.  My own rhythms here take time to establish themselves.  Once I can get a grip on the new activity, and make the new thing habitual, I can then re-assimilate the older things and relationships that needed to take a backseat for a while. Needless to say, I am pretty stressed out until I can establish this rhythm.  I need to feel comfortable with what I am doing, with the change my relationships have gone through, and the swinging timetables.

But everybody goes through transitions in their own time, in their own way.  And respect needs to be taken here on all sides.  Some go through this phase quickly, some over many months.  Don’t create unnecessary problems by insisting that your loved ones need to hurry it up or slow it down.  Let everyone work at their own pace.  And communicate, communicate, communicate. Tell people if you need more time. Tell them if you need less time. A good conversation here can save a lot of pain.

About Nathan

Hi! I am Nathan! So why am I here? That is my main question. I am fascinated by the current wave of science meeting with the philosophical questions throughout history. I am a Taoist and a disorganized dreamer who makes up new words to describe states of being and thought processes. I love to bring to you these simple yet powerful little inspirations and truths. I believe that each one of us is infinitely important and we are all connected. As Carl Sagan put it, “We are a way for the Cosmos to know itself.” We might be all connected, but you are still you. It is your perceptions that shape your reality. So join me in changing perceptions!
