In the same way that the seasons repeat themselves year after year, they also usher in change.
With every rhythm of repetition we can add notes of editing and refinement.
As an Enneagram 7 I’m wired for change. And where I’ve appreciated it the most is when it’s layered with the richness of familiarity and connection.
New but at the same time old and meaningful. This is the beauty of repeat…it offers the best of both worlds.
What holiday family traditions do you repeat year after year?
I find ‘new’ options each year I want to try… but time just won’t expand to house everything on my list – editing is required.
When I suggest… maybe we will do this instead of that, my children revolt – keeping is required.
All of this is a part of the repeat process – hone, refine, improve. I’m embracing the depth afforded me here.
NEW, is exciting an unknown – but it lacks a past, a history, a life and breathe until it too grows into something worthy of REPEAT.
