Change can sometimes be the most fantastic thing in the moment, but I still want to yell at the world to stop spinning, just for one moment, just enough to not spill my coffee on my dress or get on the wrong bus line.
I quit my job, twice.
I got really mad at an IKEA dresser.
I bought fresh flowers.
I was offered a new job, and then another one.
I put a voice to a lot more truth.
I sold my camera.
I bought a coffee table.
I hugged two very dear friends who flew to see me in my city.
I sat in the redwoods in a spot that felt like magic.
I drove down the coast and remembered all the promises of the ocean.
I wrote a letter to someone who felt death.
I got a little bit closer to who I am.
And I finally went to see the eye doctor.
Sometimes I need to remember that all this shifting is not good or bad or too much. It just is. More stories (and changes) to come.
'Tis the season, apparently.
