There’s that saying, that every 7 years, every cell in our body is replaced. Our bodies are in a state of reinvention every 7 years. You can’t see the change. Most of the time, you can’t even feel it.
The way I see it, we have the opportunity to start fresh. We can reinvent ourselves, change direction, change our appearance, change our lifestyle, change our careers. But do we? Some do. Some stay stagnant.
I went about a career change 5 years ago. Closing a business I had built over 11 years (which had its’ own share of transitions), and going back to work outside the home. At the time, it was one of the best things I did.
I’m shy of the 7 year turnover, but I have that itch to reinvent, and I’m entertaining it. I don’t know what will come of it. I don’t know if I have it in me to build something again. But it’s one of those instances where you have to follow your heart. And this is what my heart tells me. Stay tuned.
