State O’Flux

“Of course, there will be an adjustment period…”

As I heard these words this weekend, I stopped and truly thought about them.  I cannot remember not being in an adjustment period.  The whole of my life has been a journey of adjustment to ever changing circumstances and resources.  One glance at the lives of my parents, my children, or my friends shows me that I am hardly alone in this state of flux. To be sure, there are constants, but my perception of them is ever-changing.  I have been in my life, my entire life and I keep changing my opinion of me.

I’ll just have to adjust.

    “Urgent Longings: Reflections on Infatuation, Intimacy and Sublime Love” by Thomas J. Tyrrell (Mar 1994) is an excellent commentary on this. Among other things, he notes that the roller-coaster ride of our emotions, which we when adolescents think will end in a few years, never stops.
