Is Each Turning Point A New Life?

Once we have considered the effects various turning points have had on our lives, another perspective comes into view.

At each of those junctures, it is as if we had an opportunity to begin our life again, learning new things, making new friends, seeing the world from a different point of view.

Sometimes I feel like I have lived more than one lifetime during this lifetime.

Perhaps it is because we are part of transitional generations that all of this seems so radical. Our parents and grandparents in many cases lived their entire lives living in one area, perhaps working most of their lives in a single career or single company or in a single marriage.

Today we have several careers, several moves, and maybe not several, but more than one marriage. Each of these events gives us the opportunity to start life over. It is neither good nor bad, it is simply the way our lives have evolved.
