The theme that has been recurring for me the last few years of my life and especially in the last few weeks has been the idea that with every new beginning, there are inevitable endings. Each time I create my desires into form and manifest new opportunities, I must let go of other opportunities and miss out on things I created before or in other places of the world. We can't be in two places at once, after all. At least I haven't figured out how to be, yet. To create space for the new, there must be some old that gets squeezed out. And so the work is to create space for the new and to grieve what won't be anymore, and allowing ourself the time to release attachments to titles, situations, or belongings, seeing ourselves as independent of our circumstance so that we can truly be free to flow with the current of life.
Ever read something that compels you or affects you in some way and you think, “I could’ve written that!”? Not in a sense of competitiveness like “I could’ve written that better…” but simply, "I could do something like that.". If not writing specifically, maybe you were inspired by a skill, activity, or that hobby you saw someone doing well. That's how I've felt the past few years as I've watched my list of unwritten writing ideas get longer and longer on my Notes app, with no progress on my own personal blog. Sure, I've maintained my business site and I've been writing for other sites, but creating a place to share my journey has been something I've been wanting to do for many years now.
