As I’m going through some big changes right now (never have I not had a job working crazy hours, I now am working on creating an actual Sarah-schedule … ), there are alot of “peel-backs” I am experiencing.
Like any time of a deepened evaluation and inventory of ‘life’, I’m dealin with taking some and losing some. No, not all inconsistency is bad, but nor is all mellowness good. I almost feel like I am cleaning out my fridge … only wanting to keep the freshest of items and ones I will actually use to create something. Others could probably relate more to ‘purging’ (for some reason, I don’t have as much fun throwing away as I do for re-using items for alternative purposes!), maybe even a cleansing … I see it all the same … we’re all given continuous opportunities to start afresh, clear our palette, blank our slates.
Yet, much like this wall painted over many times, through many years, with many more stories that I could not even begin to compare to my own to, there is always a tinge of color left behind. A reminder of a lesson, a cherished smile, tears that were never seen, joy that still beams. Change can be good … colorful really.
