I know, so cheesy for a title, but I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I used to believe that once I made it over a hurdle that was it. I was done. Then when I’d see that I was approaching that same hurdle for possibly the millionth time, I would get so bitchy, especially at myself, thinking I had grown beyond it, even though I hadn’t.
Now, with a hefty dose of forgiveness for not being the perfect being I would like and a lot of humor mixed in, I know that there are always going to be more hurdles. More writing, creating, destroying, befriending, letting go, more yoga sessions, more people I don’t like encroaching into my space.
The cool part, however, is that I now mostly accept that I am an ever-evolving human (this is a hurdle, too!). I can change my mind, my habits, and my jean size. If I approach life with an open heart and mind, it is all good, sweet, and wonderful, too. I don’t need to lament, lambast, or whine, but will when required. I can keep on keepin’ on. It’s such a good feeling!
