Both of my trampoline coaches this weekend encouraged me to break some of my patterns.
Circus never fails to deliver what I need in my life in general.
Patterns are patterns. If it’s showing up on the trampoline, then it’s showing up in my life and in my work.
In every realm, breaking patterns is my work right now.
This makes sense, because it’s the core outcome of my latest project. The universe is calling on me to strengthen my own pattern interrupt game.
The trampoline offers a space for a lot of repetition in a short time frame, which makes is a good place to practice many skills, including breaking patterns.
Changing things changes things.
Patterns have ripple effects. Change the nature of a bounce and you can change your whole trick. When you change one thing, you potentially change everything that comes after.
It’s going to feel weird and different and often “wrong.” You’re so used to doing it w certain way, that way feels “normal” to you, even if it’s causing you harm.
Changing things may even lead to an inferior end-result — what seems like an inferior outcome — although that inferior outcome is temporary.
Changing things changes things. But it’s the only way to improve.
