Cycles of change

I’ve read in several places that all things are cyclical – of course, I can’t right now recall where I read this except for a vague memory of a science fiction story or two which talked about human history being cyclical etc. Anyway, things in my life seem to be cyclical too. I’ve noticed the greater cycles – the ones which seem to take years. I think I just started another cycle and that one seems to be a five year cycle and seems to have a valley or a peak (probably a valley would be more appropriate since to me that’s where things start) in October. I’ve also suddenly become aware of minor cycles – things which happen over a few days (maybe four or five days) and then repeat again over and over. Some cycles can be good but certain cycles I wish that I could break out of – yes, all of this really sounds cryptic unless you know what I’m talking about :p So why the heck am I writing this at all if I’m not going to talk about what these cycles involve? Probably just to hear my own thoughts and to put them in order more than anything else.

I don’t think I should be going into the minor cycles at the moment but the major cycles as far as I am concerned, involve career, relationship and family. I think I started a cycle in 1997 when I left for the US and it ended when I came back this year and another one seems to have started off around October again – I don’t know where that one goes but if I can still recall this in five year’s time, I’ll probably be able to tell whether it is really an exact cycle or not. Or maybe I’m just looking for order in a chaotic life, who knows – certainly not I :p
