Last night I snapped this photo, Instagrammed it and wrote: Sometimes this always learning stuff is totally rad. Even when it shakes you up and spits you out. You look around and say, "yep, just where I am supposed to be."
A few seconds later, I added a PS of sorts that said: of course it's understood that sometimes the always learning part is exhausting and feels like shit. but later the "yes, this" comes.
I snapped the photo because for one slice of one moment, I felt like I could touch a deeper understanding of where I am right now. I didn't feel behind or not enough. I wasn't wishing for something else. I was full of a sense of trust that I really can sift through all the stuff, the chatter, the social media, the shoulds, the whys and listen to what I know.
Because I'll forget this and feel overwhelmed and lost and alone and behind and how the list goes on one day soon, maybe later today (maybe in a few seconds) or tomorrow or one day next week, I'll keep documenting through words and photos and phrases hammered into lockets so I will remember to trust that I really am in charge of this story I'm living.
PS Just four three spots left for Water Your Soul :: Being Seen. We start Monday and will begin gathering in our private Facebook group this weekend.
