I have been quiet lately, as I have been undergoing a challenging transition. Amidst the tears and the pain, I know that I am growing and becoming. My life is going to be entirely different than I imagined, and my future is unknown. But today the sun is shining, the birds are chirping gently, and despite the emotional storms of the past few months the morning breeze is gentle, as though the breath of a higher power is caressing me gently with the soothing reminder: yes, Katy, you will be okay.
And I know I will be.
Life cycles forward. There is comfort in this spinning wheel of destruction, death, rebirth. It is the natural order of everything. We break down so we can begin again. We fall so we can fly.
