Coming down the mountain is about engaging in the process of endings. Most of us get excited about starting a new project, planning and preparing for it. The actual journey up is filled with anticipation and the hope to see something extraordinary. The trip down however can be very mundane and sometimes painful. Yet it is not all about the view, it is about the experience of the going up and down and what we do with it, which is never wasted. The efforts put in, even though the outcome might have been lacking, are never lost.have been contemplating on the pace of my own life and that of the people I see both professionally and privately. There is a real urge in myself and the people around me to move from one experience to the next and a craving for new learning and development. Through the help of my supervisor I have come to realise how important slowing down is - on many different levels.
Dare making the descent and engage with endings gracefully! Endings hold so much potential for learning even if they seem less exhilarating. They are important to bring closure and to create space in order for new things to come in and they are filled with opportunities to grow and evolve.
