Sometimes transformation is a sudden, jarring, experience.
Sometimes the transformation is a slow, plodding along, experience.
And sometimes, transformation is so minute, so small, that we didn’t even notice it happened.
Almost more important than the event itself is our relationship to it.
Are we anticipating it with impatience and restlessness?
Are we sitting back and just waiting for it to happen to us without our involvement?
Are we so confident it is happening that we don’t even give it a thought and just keep doing what we’re doing?
Transformation takes on many forms and many appearances.
It can be like the caterpillar going inside its cocoon.
It can be like a snake shedding its skin.
Or it can be like a sudden break-up in a relationship.
We are transforming all the time.
We are growing and changing every day.
We are always in the middle of our transformation, which may be why we don’t notice it.
Our attitudes and preconceptions around transformation will color how we transform.
It is common to expect that over-night, instantaneous transformation will happen.
Yet it is more common that the transformation happens little by little, one step at a time, over a long period of time.
What do you expect about your own transformation?
Will it be sudden or slow?
Either way, you’re right.
