We are infinitely evolving.
Nothing about our existence can truly be broken down into checkpoints, as much as we’d love to believe it could be logged in a pretty Excel spreadsheet. Nope.
In truth, one experience just leads us to our next experience. One moment connects to the next moment, which leads us to some opportunity, from which we may build strength, or let go, or heal – and moves us on to something new. On and on. We make baby steps until we look behind us and see progress. There is no use standing in darkness, worrying about what lies behind the walls ahead, when we know that there’s light on the other side.
So then, we decide to l e t g o and slide the first toe forward. Our journey begins and it goes on like this, one step at a time. We can set goals for ourselves. There can be a natural beginnings and resolutions, lightbulbs and milestones, but nothing really comes to an end. It’s not linear.
When it comes to this kind of growth, we can work hard on the trajectory, but we don’t control every facet of our transformation. That’s why making meaningful changes is
sometimes often a painstakingly slow and frustrating process.
Window by window, we open.
Petal by petal, unfolding.
