The idea of cycles/circles has been floating around life lately. From films i’ve been watching, music, books to life in general. The theme wasn’t intentional it just seemed to be there, like the coffee cup ring that even the toughest of bleach can’t get out.
I have been listening to this podcast ‘Dream, Play,Write’ for a couple of weeks and one of the most recent podcasts relates to giving and how there is this cycle that is created when you give to someone, a cycle of giving and receiving.
There it is again….cycle.
So ok, this giving idea is a good cycle and can have some pretty positive effects, but if this is a good cycle by the means of binary opposites there has the be bad ones too.
Bad cycles that keep going round and round, ones you wish you could just break out of, for example:
Unhealthy lifestyle, dis-organization, money issues, bad moods or ……when you have a crush that is going no where and you finally think screw it why am I bothering with this it’s going nowhere I can see that it’s over i can stop but then he sends you a text message and you realise that the cycle is still going as your reach for the phone to reply to the message in break neck speed……. and if you just read that, with no breaks you would feel the breathlessness that I feel every time he sends me a message. Balls. Sorry 20 something girl issue.
As you can see I am dealing with a bad cycle at the moment although it kind of seems small and stupid in comparison to others I have mentioned. Breaking the bad and keeping the momentum going on the good is hard and takes courage, passion and in my experience the ability to enjoy life. The stress and worry that you feel when you are within the bad cycles keep the momentum of them going, positivity will weaken the structure allowing you to break or at least fray the lines that are spinning round you. It sounds like science when you think about it.
With the Podcasts I have previously mentioned you are asked in the first one to write down things you are thankful for, even if they are tiny they are still a positive part of your life. I have keep mine as a list and whenever I feel stress getting to me or i’m swaying to the dark side away from optimism I think about the list and wonder why the hell I was so negative for.
I guess what i’m trying to say is that life is full of these little cycles ( i’ve used this word way too much) they can be good and they can be horrendously bad but a little positivity, faith in yourself and a pinch of laughter they can be broken.
Just try it.
One last thing
Life moves in a circle, for everyone that leaves us, someone new joins the world. Also as the Earth is spinning while rotating round the sun, i’d say we can’t really get away from cycles or circles MIND BLOWN!!!!
I’ll just leave this here….
