Something Broke

Like a dam, but it's not all bad and it's not a tragedy.  A revelation, perhaps, but nothing to weep for.  Envelopes pushed.  Barriers questioned. Ledges not leapt.  Confrontations de-escalated.  An internal decision held quietly firm.  Steadfast in continuity.  Questions sometimes answered.  Old identity shed and new one surfacing.

Something broke, but not all "broken" things are bad.

Anchors and Freedom

Anchors can represent safety and they can also hold one back.  A tether severed is a chance to fly freely.

Lesson of a Year

"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."

Toughest Few Months

Have been listening to my instincts.  It's pushed my boundaries in a few areas, but it's brought me a great deal of peace overall.  It's hard to explain what a lifted weight it is to feel safe with one's own judgment making skills.

Each Day, I Feel Closer to Home

I am incredibly grateful for this most recent round of interviews and the insights they have provided.  Peeling back the layers of so many unexpected experiences and then having a chance to take some time to breath and return to oneself is insanely awesome.

Still not sure what's in store for the future, but the most recent tunnel of WTF has concluded and I feel all the better for it.  Determined, but open.  Not needing to go all ON with my freak flag, but definitely done deal with the old school boy's club of corporate life.

Keep your fingers crossed, y'alls - rested and ready!

Thinking and Re-adjusting

I can't decide which of the three versions I've linked in the song title I like more, but all that matters is: Thank you, Hundred Waters!
    Hundred Waters
    Don’t let me show cruelty
    Though I may make mistakes
    Don’t let me show ugliness
    Though I know I can hate
    And don’t let me show evil
    Though it might be all I take
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Don’t let me think weakly
    Though I know that I can break
    Keep me away from apathy
    While I am still awake
    And don’t let me think too long
    Of the one I’m bound to face
    Show me love
    Show me love
    Show me love
