My colleague, Amy, drove thirty minutes to and from work using the same daily route for eight years. One morning Amy arrived at work to the realization that the entire drive had been a blur. She had not even remembered the school bus driver helping third graders climb onto her bus.
For two years, Amy would be giddy over coffee as she described her obligatory stop and enjoyment over watching the elderly woman climb down the steps of her bus to greet the children and help them up as only a grandmother could do. The intergenerational exchange provided great meaning to Amy. However, on this morning, the normally beautiful scenery and the school bus full of children had escaped her.
I described the phenomena as inertia; a resistance to change that was begging to happen. Amy had been complaining that her job had become monotonous and now even the drive to work that had always provided solace to her was a boring blur. Were these simply coincidences or signs of something awakening in her life? The confluence of these events did get Amy’s attention.
It turns out that she had been harboring a passion to become a massage therapist and open a spa, but she had not pursued the dream because her parents had cautioned that she could not earn a living massaging people. Nevertheless, three years later, Amy obtained her license, and with an investment from her father, opened her business. She is loving it and steering the course of her dream.
