A while back I wrote on the idea of cause and effect, specifically as it pertains to choices we make in life. Amanda, added to that with her entry on “Choices“. So, I am sure it will not be surprising to you that since I titled the first entry “Cause and Effect – Part One”, I would therefore have more to say on the subject.
So here goes:
If you have been reading our blog for some time now you will (hopefully) notice that there are a number of recurring themes. One of those broader and more common themes is the idea of personal responsibility, especially as it pertains to how we all make choices in our lives.
We can choose to be happy or sad. We can choose to see people a certain way. We can choose how we treat people. We can choose how we treat ourselves. You get the idea. Life is a series of choices we get to/have to make and the bottom line is that what we get out of life is a direct result of those choices – the good and the bad. Cause and effect.
Here at The Transmogrifier, we all chose to give up other jobs we had in order to pursue this passion. Some thought we were a bit crazy (or even a lot crazy) but it was nonetheless, our choice to do so. Over the past almost year that we have been focused on this, there have been times when all of us have wondered and even said out load that maybe this wasn’t the best choice, or the best timing, or… We doubted if we made the right choices.
Another theme you will see repeated in our blog is the sense of adventure that we appreciate and enjoy (as much as we can!) The choice for all of us to dive into this adventure and take on what will be an ongoing effort for years was a big one. Like some of the great explorers hundreds of years ago – we had no map to go by when we set out on the journey. We simply have a desire to explore and create and we hope you are willing to go along on this journey with us to see what we create. Though we will at times have doubt about our choices, we have chosen to push forward.
So, let’s see what the effect is for this cause we have embarked on…
