There is no feeling more heavy…

… than the weight of carrying your old self around in search of the new within you. There is no task more daunting and yet more necessary and more powerful than acceptance in the face of that discovery. NO act is more important on a path to authenticity than letting go of the old you to embrace what is now. Each day, I rise to be, my spine protests the weight of memories, regrets, and hopes without expectation, misconceptions, miscommunication, and missed chances. I dust my shoulders in tandem with time.
