I have always been one to set goals and make plans. In the last year my goals and plans have changed dramatically. I had to take a step back from some relationships and focus on my personal development and growth. I was literally and figuratively at a crossroads.
The last time I felt like this was 7 years ago when I was living in France. It seems appropriate that I would think about my time in France and the person I was before how that experience shaped me.
In french the word for crossroads is “Carrefour.” I love the word because it evokes these thoughts of four directions for life. The future and the past are are in front and behind you making your path brighter or dimmer with each step.
The timing of this change in me also was of interest. I remember hearing a theory on personal development coming every 7 years. Do you buy into the thought the every 7 years you change?
