Once More, Into the Breach
The Universe has come around and roadblocks have unblocked themselves, as they always do.
My inner Ganesh has graced me with the ability to recognize my own obstacles and how I build them even higher when I can't see a way over.
It has been a wild few months of uncertainty, shedding of the old skin, growing of the new skin, reconnection with things that are essential and turning my back on things that are not.
My ability to say "no" and to not carry other people's baggage became supremely important during this time of evolution for me. I don't apologize for making people unhappy because of it.
I just don't have the patience to parent grown-ups. I'm happy to walk side by side but not to carry.
Be that as it may, I go once more into the breach. Into the unknown and into the path less travelled.
This means wonderful things for me: new job, new home, new city. This is a path that has been 5 years in the coming and I get to keep the very best of my old life: my partner, my dog and my belief in myself.
It's not easy to leave. It's not easy to shed, pack up, start fresh and jump into the breach - again.
But you know what? Rebirth isn't just for newborns. Rebirth is a gift we can give ourselves.
I'm looking so forward to breathing my first breaths in my new life and to dipping my toes in an ocean of new.
