The Dreaded "Change" (No not a sex change.) 08/26/2010
Every time a new season approaches I feel an internal shift take place. My mind starts working differently, I am draw to different colors & smells; I even develop a little skip in my step (more so then usual.)
This particular seasonal shift will be extra special.
Heather is moving in this weekend. I am doing an extreme decluttering through the boxes of stuff that reside in what will soon be her room. Then we are having a yard sale & whatever is left over will go to charity.
Not only am I shedding layers of stuff that do not serve me, but I am also shedding layers of emotional baggage that have become to heavy for me to carry.
I spent yesterday with a couple friends that I haven’t seen in months. The connection that we once shared was not as strong & at times I found it difficult to stay present to how things are now, because I was too focused on why it was different from before.
When I headed back home I was sad at what I felt like I had lost. But after sleeping on the disappointment, I can only relish in the fact that it is a great thing that our relationships have changed.
It means that we have grown & expanded. We have shed layers that once made us children & embraced our adulthood, our passions, ambitions & dreams.
We are moving forward.
Staying the same is easy, but being able to live in gratitude for what we cannot control (change,) is admirable.
