A BREAKTHROUGH IS JUST ONE MOMENT OF A PROCESS

A breakthrough is a sudden dramatic moment.
It is exhilarating
Miraculous.
Exciting
And, in some way, a big relief.

Why relief?
Because there is a before and after to a breakthrough moment or event.
Before breakthrough, pressure has been building for a long time or it wouldn’t be a breakthrough.
The pressure of vision, hard work, hope, belief, endurance and incredible resilience.
The pressure of seeing the breakthrough moment, wanting it and not having it.
Tolerating the tension of what is and what could be.

Several of my loved ones have just had breakthrough moments.
One, husband, just finished the last draft of a book he has been working on for at least five years.  (YES you will hear more about it)
It was a lovely moment to see him hold the physical draft in his hands.
He was buoyant for two days.

Then came the second half of a breakthrough moment.
The new moment becomes daily reality –the new normal.
The awareness of new labor to come dawns.
Second guessing the breakthrough follows.
The miraculous becomes mundane.

So when you experience a breakthrough wallow in it for a while.
Enjoy that something new has happened.
Work will always be, so why not work on something wonderful and new?
