"In a world of reinventions, it's never too late." - @samsmithworld 🎵.
I'll (try to) keep a long story short.
Last night at @exhaleyogalouisville 's Yin class, the wonderful instructor Cal had us visualize us with our younger selves. What they would tell us, and us them. Then, he asked about the journey from them to us. What occurred? What brought us from there to here? Who are we now?
That last bit got me - "Who am I?"
My eyes welled up a bit as I realized...
I don't know.
But the tears weren't sad - they were tears of release. It was a soulful revelation of sorts.
I'm being molded. Remodeled. Transformed.
We get locked into the idea of "finding ourselves." But you don't want to stay there too long - that's stagnancy. While many of my lifelong qualities, like strength, discipline, a strong will, and extreme determination, all remain, I'm not who I've been.
I don't know exactly what that means to me yet - I'm becoming. It's painful and it hurts and it's confusing, because it's unknown.
We all go through transformative periods throughout our lives. Find peace in being a blank page, pen in hand and ready to write, scribble, doodle, word vomit, whatever makes sense to you.
I encourage you to embrace your uncertainties today. They're molding you. Lean into and have a conversation with yourself. Be open.
The only constant is change. Hold on to what you're sure of, and let the rest float away.
Go somewhere that brings you peace within yourself - while I don't dance anymore, a good barre always does that for me. Stay present and free of judgement. Be like water - strong but freely flowing.
Let's grow together 🖤.
