"we all get so caught up
in the moment
of what we're doing every day,
it's hard to hit that reset button
and get pulled away
from all that and see
life from a different perspective."
this year has been a year of thinking. thinking about doing. thinking about what to do. thinking about how to do. what to do it with. not a lot of doing. just a lot of being stuck. being. stuck. you have to hold on to those two words separately. together they are too daunting. too damning. strung together, they accuse. they mock. they label.
being stuck: you are stuck.
but separate, they hold the key to liberation from that accusation.
separate, they allow growth and hope. being: the state of life and experience. stuck: a lack of movement. dormancy. you don't condemn a seed for not yet blossoming into a glorious plant. you nurture it. encourage it to grow. so why do we disparage ourselves when we become dormant? stuck?
it is time for me to focus on the first word. being. when we break the statement, being stuck, down this way, we can allow ourselves to grow. there is an open-endedness to being. a promise of something more. something different. now it is being full.
