“I barely even noticed how the fibers did tear away From the fabric of my being
And nobody knows it like you do babe, nobody knows it like you do Nobody knows it like you do babe, the lengths we will go to
I’m going down a long road, maybe it’s the wrong road But either way I gotta find my way back home again It’s too late to turn back now, gotta get the lead on out Gotta find some way to make it right on” — The Devil is All Around by Shovels and Rope
We’ve come full circle. In between it so many miles, memorable moments, milestones and months. For you, those train tracks and hours of reflection. For me, nervous hands gripping the wheel of that little red car and a breakfast of carrots and oats. A thing of beauty that circle. It continues to surround us, will forever lie within us and has brought us back together. The path around taught us so much, tested us, opened us up to let the light shine in. Back in this place where the journey began so many moons ago, we are stronger for it, better for it, we’re standing tall. Good on us.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
What a summer it’s been. On the one hand so much has happened, on the other life has felt a bit on pause. Like so much of my life recently, the months seemed to turn into mere hours. It’s as though summer never fully emerged. Despite this, I managed to complete my yoga teacher training program and my holistic nutrition consultant program. Though it feels good to have a big part of this work behind me, it’s only the beginning. The list of what comes next has already been forming for some time now in my mind. For now, I think I’ll just enjoy the last bit of summer ahead.
“Time keeps burning The wheels keep on turning Sometimes I feel I’m wasting my days How I miss you and I just want to kiss you And I’m gonna love you till my dying day How these days grow long Time keeps burning on How these days grow long” –Dying Day by Brandi Carlile
I feel like I’m starting to grow up. I’m staring down 25, one month away. For each day I feel that I’m getting old, I have days where I feel equally young. Days where I’m not so sure how I ended up here because I swear I blinked and 5 years went by. I say I feel like I’m growing up not because of where I am in life, nor my age, but because of who I’m working to become. To my core I’m a list-making, goal-oriented kind of person who constantly strives to learn more, push further, look deeper and become more Grace. Only recently though have I been able to step outside and observe myself. It’s a strange thing to become more self-aware, to notice your habits (good and bad) and then actively work to cultivate the good and alter the bad. To become more conscious of your body, your thoughts, your words and your voice. Growing up is a powerful feeling.
Someday I hope to be a version of myself that likes tomatoes, beets, fennel and cilantro. For now, I work them in with things I really like, like fruit.
