Winter is near and I am not afraid…I am ready to hibernate, to get to know who I am in this intimate space…so that I can emerge in the Spring, ready to begin again. No more pretending, no more waiting, no more feeling sorry and regretful for the things I did not do. Tomorrow is a new day, however, today I am here and ready to begin again. No faltering, no halting, full speed ahead I travel to my rightful destination. Beneath the ground, my roots go deep, connected to the core…I’m like the waves on the shore, stopping and starting again and again, gaining momentum and becoming more powerful. Washing away all that does not define who I am deep inside, I must let it ride. It is okay, for whatever I release gives me the peace of mind I so desperately need.
