Not every marriage is successful and not every story end with happily ever after paraphrase. The same plot is likely on let’s say forming a group of people with common interests. It will not be an idea of one but of a few or rather from one to many. The enthusiasm is extremely high and the future looks promising. Someone above the rest will lead and will set the direction based on common ground. Laughter and beers will drown every failure down the road. Let ‘em say we’re still work-in-progress and we will come to the point where we can really call ourselves competitors.


But along the way, changes are inevitable. People will have different priorities, different lifestyle, with so much focus on responsibilities. Then there goes the first, second, third, fourth alumni. But new faces come into picture. Again, new hopes were born. New definition of the word challenge, the whole new meaning of WE. Bad times, good times, even more bad times but still we just call it another part of building a more stronger and solid foundation. And at the end, ice-cold beer will cure every pain and every frustration.


The main reason why the group was formed slowly fades away like as how the original mainstay was fitted with new shoes.  Only few were left and were replaced by new action stars. Perhaps the spirit that binds the group is just hanging by a thread. Most likely tired of the tradition the group needs to be revolutionized or reborn.


But hope is eternal. And the trigger will just appear in time that everyone is not expecting it. Then the surprising change came in that looks to energized the already exhausted soul of the group. When people step-up amazingly when someone says adieu temporarily. Somehow a huge sign that stays for such time. A period where a rewind of everything from day 1 is the best thing to do.


The suffocating tradition maybe the culprit of everything. One cannot hold on to the very same chair for a very long time. A good leader will always think what is best for the rest and not to oneself alone. Even if it became part of your daily life, your true love next to the people you love most, your habit that is definitely hard to break and part of your soul, if everything looks bad when your hands on, and the opposite if not, then it is just time to let it go.


A true leader will think about the survival of all and not by one, of the single reason why it is there in the first place. If it will looks better with the total absence of who formed it and not how it was formed, then it is just time to let it go.


Some relationships ends prematurely, but life that is, full of mystery, complications and never ending changes.


But for the best part, the group that was originally formed for one single reason will stays with still that single reason. And that is where it all started.


People is asking why?


Well, good leader will say “it is time for new ideas”, a better one will say “it is for the common good of majority” while the least will simply say “my time is over…”
