059: DESTRUCTION, TRANSITION, REDEFINITION

"…all I see are six billion lunatics trying to find the fastest way out!"
- Glory (Buffy "Weight of the World")

This guy's life is one complicated deal.

But I think I may have cracked the formula. A recurring theme that seems to take place over the span of a few years.

It goes destruction, transition and then finally redefinition.

Destruction is the state in which this guy has all the things around him systematically removed. It can be friends, or material possessions or even a job.
He is knocked out of his comfort zone and spends countless hours brooding by himself, trying to find away out of the damage. 2004 was most definetly a year spent in this phase.

Transition occurs when anger sets in. He will empower himself and begin the slow arduous process of changing into the next phase of what he is to become. The transitional phase is often a painful one, where the previous persona is shrugged off in favour of a new one.
Brooding will slowly, but eventually subside. Habits and thought processes are modified. Often strange behaviour and cravings will ensue. He will feel the urge to fight.

Redefinition is the final stage of this process, in which he completes his transformation. He will undoubtedly have left behind many people along the way.
Drastic, and seemingly unnecessary changes may have been made along the way. However these changes will now appear completely warranted. The cycle is complete.

On most occasions, all three phases can take a year or two. Sometimes the process is accelerated and condensed to a matter of months.
Right now, I would say I'm in the Transition phase, possibly three quarters through it.
Careful mapping of these phases will assist in dealing with bad moods, paranoia and a general bad disposition.

This seems like the circle of life for Danny Power - I am just relieved you aren't stuck in Destruction still, and while Transition seems like a fair place in between I hope you find that wagon to Redefination soon.
Good Luck hotstuff... :)
P.s I miss you - :(

Mel: Destruction was truly satisfied last year and there was some spillage into the 05. However Transition kicked in round February.

Redefinition is pencilled in for late November/December this year (continuing into the new year).

Mocushie: Firstly I hope ur ankle is okay. And if you dont blog soon, I'll punch you. Thanks for the cyber-love :-)

Izchan: transition is the toughest phase of them all. Many good people fall victim to drugs, alcohol and drag queens in this phase.

Be strong, my ally!
