Life is packed with opportunity to “Re.” Just think of all the words we can add that prefix to, like–“reinvent.” I love that one.
We have the prerogative to adjust and reconfigure even if we are boldly going in one direction and find we would or should go in another. I just had a couple of conversations with a couple of friends this week about permissions to “Re.”
One friend and I dream and strategically plan often. We are creative and have the ability to make things happen. Yet, we don’t always follow through with every grand dream we come up with. And, that’s just fine. What I like about our friendship is that we give each other space and choice; we always have take-away from our visions, whether they have played out (yet!) or not.
As I told another friend how that works so well I could see relief come across her brow. Pressure was removed. She too can move forward with new daring dreams without worrying because she can “Re” as need be. Timelines can be “reconfigured” or “reconstructed.” Projects can be “reordered” as need be.
I am not saying that everything should be chaotic and in constant change. Rather we have choices to “remove” what should not be in the picture and “replace it with better” and we need to allow ourselves and others liberty to do so. This especially plays true for creative types as well as the whole lot of humanity.
Do you have people you can dream with? Do you allow yourself to dream and then to try new ideas? There is a lot of freedom in relationships that allow one another space to think and live out loud without being judged. How many of us would try more incredible and new adventures or ventures–if we had someone that said, “Try it, you may like it–it may be your niche and your legacy!”
In what areas do you see room to use the “Re?”
(Notice all of the erasings on the chalkboard in the photo of Einstein?)
Call me if you would like some “reassurance” along with strategy, connections, implementation, and creativity to pull off your dream.
