ALCHEMY OF WORDS
ALCHEMY OF WORDS
Give yourself permission to be you.
No one else can.
Life does not come with instructions. No one can tell you what is right for you, where your path will lead, how to find your way home.
The world of humans is drawn in straight lines, because other people are just trying to make sense of it. Most of the time you don’t have to color within those lines. Or walk within them.
You can jaywalk over to where you want to be. Even if no one has drawn an outline for it yet.
That path may end up being pretty crooked. And you’ll be tempted from time to time to judge yourself harshly, because it isn’t neat and doesn’t look like other people’s.
If you walk a crooked-path, take heart. The straight lines others have walked are no measure of success or happiness.
There are no certainties except uncertainty. And this uncertainty is the compost that creates the fertile soil of imagination, of creation, of beauty.
There are times in each of our lives when we simply get lost. Because that is life. The older we get, the more we realize how little we know, anyway. But the best way to know yourself is to walk your own path. No matter how messy.
Some days we are the wind, some days, the feather. The feather’s strength is its ability to let go.
The main thing is to be brave enough to live your own life. Even if you have to break a few arbitrary rules to do it.
So, I am writing this to put out into the world that I am doing just that. Walking my talk. Or jaywalking it, at least.
This has been a long time in the making. And it was ready to launch before covid took over the world. But now I'm making it a real thing.
Jaywalking Between Worlds, a podcast that breaks some rules, in a good way. Stay tuned for dates, times, and debut episodes. Right around the new year's corner. See you then.
