It’s May. Wow. Already? Yes.
The school year is creeping to a close, summer is on the horizon and crazily enough, I just might meet my goal of writing every day for a year here. I’m not sure exactly what I expected when I took this on but I am grateful that I did. I learned more about what I was missing right in front of me when I started really paying attention to what happened each day – mining it for the takeaway yielded more material that I could have imagined (even if the post of the day was only a few hundred words). I have routinely categorized the years that pass by what I thought was a normal measure (broad strokes) but I have found that when I take the time to notice the details, my life has become so much bigger that just my role in it.
I have just shy of two months left on this blog-a-day project and I intend to do my best to capture the days as they go by and the memories that surface during them to remember what a year can do with a person. My transformation has been subtle; I don’t have the glory of a massive change that can be photographed, but I FEEL different, in a very good way. Maybe that is what therapy does for you – gives you the time and space to name your feelings, fears and dreams so that you can tackle them one by one. Here we go again, a new month, with limitless possibilities where I have learned to remain open.
