C.H.A.N.G.E


I done did it again...

Change

I changed the settings on this blog site... a reflection of the changes taking place within me.
I've done the same with my home... new curtains, fabrics in my bedroom, new scents burning in the burner, new bathroom products...
I've done my big chop... took the scissors to my head and did it myself... got rid of the braids... the permed hair... the damaged tresses that my long hair covered up... got rid of the cover up... no more transitioning... no dyes... no texturizing products... just naturally me...
I've done in with my mental... shedding the thoughts, the patterns that weigh me down...

Change

Sometimes others are uncomfortable with my changes... as if my shifting means that I'm canceling people...

And I do...

But only the fruitless, the trivial... the things and people that don't nurture me back...
With the seasons and the weather patterns, with the shifting winds and even the rain fall... I'm thankful for the rain and the cleansing it brings... this spring season brings about another cycle to purge

Change

I'm looking forward to these summer months... this vacation time... the breaking out of the old and into the new... the breaking out of the cold and into the warmth... the beach weather... the seasonal fruits... the hot romantic nights... new music playing... new movies to see... new tastes to sample...

Change

For the 1st time in years I am taking a vacation... going away with friends... being carefree yet responsible... going somewhere I've never been... around other people I do not know... and open to the possibilities and positivity...

Change

For years... it's been work... home... church... and my family... Recently I've added a social life... interacting with and growing from listening and engaging with others... with like minds. I feel the tension from being stagnant and closed in... I feel where I am being stretched and enlightened...

Change

And it's been years since I've reached a goal... it's time that I embark on a new challenge... go through new struggles... learn something new... go through new tests... and attain a new goal... I'm open... I'm ready.

Well, I love the change. The new colors are refreshing.

A get away vacation . . .sounds wonderful. Can't wait to hear all about it.

As always you wrote a beautiful post and there is no need for me to say anything.
Change is good.

I could've written this myself, but you did it so much more eloquently than I ever could.

I'm excited for you and what your new future holds.
