Lately I have been thinking about the concept of life coming “full circle.” What does that even mean right?
Generally speaking, to me, full circle describes a scenario where the starting and ending point represent something similar. Full circle can be where you started something and ended something in the same place. Maybe minutes went by, or maybe years went by, but eventually a situation came full circle. For example, running a race that had the same starting and ending point: full circle. Living a life where you lived in multiple cities all over the world to end up, in the end, living in your home town: full circle. Falling in love at 14, breaking up, getting back together years and relationships later with the same person: full circle.
The term full circle is defined by Webster dictionary as “a series of changes that lead back to an original position or situation or to an opposite position or situation.” In my words, full circle is a place where, somehow, you’re beautifully guided back to a familiar place or feeling, with the passing of time, where things are different, yet oddly similar.
For some of our lives, perhaps things will come full circle. For some of us, maybe they won’t. There is no right or wrong way for this concept to show up in our lives.
Im intrigued with the concept of full circle. It’s been a pretty eye opening and interesting thing for me to look at in my own life. This has moved me to write about it for you. Can you think of things or events that have come full circle for you? Maybe you haven’t come to the point in your journey where you would even know the answer to this question. Maybe you have.
Today is simply to inspire you to stay open and present. Therefore, if and when things present themselves as full circle in your life, you will take notice.
