I woke up this morning with this phrase “Coming full circle” on my mind. It is defined in the dictionary as ‘completing a cycle, or returning to your beginning’. (Dictionary.com) I thought about that and wondered if it was a good thing or a bad thing and why was it on my mind…where did it come from. In coming full circle, it sounds like it means that a person went through a lot of life’s lessons, they should have learned from those lessons, and for some reason, the lessons that they learned fell by the wayside and now they are back at the beginning…back to where they started. Am I missing something? I was feeling confused.
In thinking further about this, I thought it could mean that one who came from meager beginnings worked their way through obstacles and forged on to become great in the field of medicine. Then they returned to their humble beginnings to help those that they left behind and to thank and maybe even assist the ones who influenced them to become the great person that they are. That sounds like a full circle…only better.
I liked that scenario. So in thinking of that, I wonder what I would need to do to ‘come full circle’ before my mission on this earth is over. Where is my beginnings and where do I need to go back to and thank and maybe even assist those who have encouraged me to be the person that I am today? Or should I wait until I get to be the successful person that I truly strive to be? I better get busy….
