The concept of being shattered is most likely clear to us all. We work, live and play hard each day and leave ourselves shattered. And then wake up in the morning and start again the cycle. The long-term benefits of this tiring process are perhaps less clear.
In terms of personal development, the sensation of feeling shattered may be linked to the efforts undertaken to reach a specific objective. Whether we are successful or not is, almost, secondary if the endeavour has left us without energy to appreciate the moment.
Yet the idea of being shattered need not be restricted to just the physical experience. In many instances to achieve a goal we will have been obliged to not only push existing limits of our existence, but also shatter them.
Limits left shattered as we progress onward should not disturb us too much. We have grown and through our actions have stretched out to fulfil our potential. The debris of shattered restraints are there merely as a reminder of our growth.
We could continue by looking at shattered dreams and dashed hopes. These points are, however, beyond the scope of today’s post so let’s place them to one side.
