A Cosmic Do-Over?

Did you feel that huge sense of deja vu? Almost like a cosmic do-over is happening?
I’d swear I’m right back to where I was in the July to September 2005 timeframe, though I’m definitely an upgraded version of who I was then. Emotionally I’m in a much better frame of mind but the opportunities coming up for me are similar—in business, in relationships, at home, in my creativity.
It’s not just me, though. I’m seeing it all around me. Most evident are the business-related do-overs.
The influences are the same as a year and a half ago. People who had the chance to start over in their careers and went through a replay of their previous year are now breaking free with a second chance to start over, this time in a wonderful way. People who had the opportunity to move to a better career field and chose familiarity instead are now getting a second chance at the original offer, but in a slightly bigger way. People who decided not to retire or leave their jobs in the late summer of 2005 are now saying goodbye at retirement/farewell parties over the next two weeks. People who lost contracts are now revisiting new and better possibilities.
It’s almost as if windows of opportunity opened and closed in the late summer of 2005 and it took 15 months for new doors to start to open if the windows closed too quickly or weren’t taken advantage of in the best possible way. Now at the 18-month mark, those new doors are open wide, beckoning with second chances.
It’s not that the time has been wasted. Not at all.
There’s been a lot of growth and healing afforded to those who were willing to find it, and now the opportunities and influences are rebounding for those who are in a better spiritual, emotional, mental situation than before.
That doesn’t mean the doors that have opened will stay open forever. Second chances can be lost as quickly as first chances, but the fact that we have second chances at all and the ability to see what we missed before, well, that’s a blessing and one we don’t want to let go without taking notice.
