🌄 Day 33/365
The sun’s got me thinking about transitions lately. Usually these circle around major events ~ birth, death, moving across oceans, marriage, certain career achievements. In society it might mean war, climate change, shifts in government, pandemics. The people we are before and after experiencing these things can be profoundly different. It’s a sacred evolution, sometimes happening against our will, having no concern for our personal wishes. I feel like in turn, we ought to have some say in who we are, control what we can, be the person we’d want to be after such profound change. I can never go back to the person I was before these last few years. I am irrevocably altered, both good and bad. My dreams and goals and plans have changed. I feel … quieter. Older. I’m learning to see this shift as a positive thing, the price of becoming wiser. On the other hand, I miss the unbridled optimism I used to have about my future. It was fun. Light. I don’t want to let my personal or societal’s woes crush me. I want say in who I am. I want to be the kind of person who rises up to meet the day.
I’m working on it.
