While walking the dog, I stumbled upon this mural, the message, simple, yet profound.
The definition of “EXIT”, the act of leaving a place, a way out or leaving something. This can apply to so many things in our day to day lives. But how do you know when it’s time to leave or exit? Oh my god, we’ve all been there, good or bad, you just need to move on and see what’s around the corner. Even when things seem too good to be true, you still need an exit strategy. Perhaps you’re afraid of being hurt or not liking the outcome of something, this would definitely require removing one’s self from a situation. I’m very impatient, so I hesitate to exit, hedging my bets, just in case I leave too soon for something great to happen. Hmmm…
The definition of “ENTRY”, the act of going in or coming in. Stepping into something new or better? I guess you need to be clear on what you are exiting to be entering…at the moment, my cards are on the table, not sure whether to hold or fold, a risk, just like any other poker game. And while we’re discussing risk, what is the risk? This should be considered, along with emotions, I don’t want to exit unless I’m clear on what I’m entering…are you confused? Me too…
Life throws many choices our way and it’s up to us to decide, is this the moment? Is this when I say yes, maybe or no to something or someone? How long can you hope or wish for something to happen before it becomes too hard to move in either direction? Frankly, I don’t want to JUST enter somewhere else…at the moment I have these feelings, I’m not sure I want to leave behind, or just not yet.
So yes, every exit is an entry somewhere else but only if you are ready to enter. Keeping in mind, it’s an exit, no doors are closed, I guess, proceed with caution, or enter at your own risk. I’m a firm believer of not bringing the past into the future, it muddies the waters going forward… or doesn’t it? Maybe it has more to do with timing? What if, your timing is out of sync with something or someone else? Do you exit or wait? To be honest, I’m at a standstill, I’m at, “it’s too good to be true” and I’m not sure what to do? Life can be fucked up sometimes but I’m okay with this…perhaps its the journey I need to experience for an entry somewhere else, which hopefully will happen with me being in sync with someone else. DEEP!
