2018 is off and running!
It is already February and it feels like time has just accelerated. With my family we enjoyed a wonderful holiday abroad. We visited Buenos Aires, Argentina and my parents birth place of Montevideo, Uruguay. I enjoyed the challenge of trying to reconnect with my parents language and my first language of spanish. It was a great battery re-charger and invigorator. I was eager to jump back into my practice with a head full and a body energised ready to implement all these new plans.
While I have all these plans to engage with in 2018 not all things always go with the proposed agenda. That’s life. So while I had to take some time off to care for my father who was recovering from surgery, I did have some time to think about what the year ahead means to me.
Metaphors have taken my attention this year. I asked myself if I could describe myself as something what would that be? The answer was a bridge. I do bridge very well – not the card game but actual bridge. I thought back when I used to play soccer. While I had some speed and ball skills in my younger years I just couldn’t shoot goals. However, I found my place on the field by being the deliverer of the ball to the shooters. I could do that very well. I was the bridge on the field that took the ball from the back to the front. When I got involved in a cycling club I was the bridge for the juniors to enter the sport. When I’m on the radio I am the cultural bridge to the community. In my profession I am the communication and understanding bridge for individuals and couples.
In my practice the significant metaphor is the pineapple. Yes, the humble pineapple.
The pineapple is symbolic of specific times during a relationship that are uncomfortable, awkward, hard to manage, frustrating and confusing yet holds the potential to be a delicious juicy nutritionment. Relationships are like pineapple sometimes! Learn to manage the disagreements with care and understanding and be nourished with a more connected and rewarding relationship.
