When new things start showing up on the horizon, sometimes old things have to give way and lovingly be released. Letting go is not always easy. It takes time to reflect and release. Sometimes to grieve.

I’m one who has picked myself up off the floor more than once. I’ve even had others comment on how good I am at it. The shift I’m feeling is more than resilience, it’s a redefinition. The reason I thought I moved back to Colorado may not be the real reason I have. Sometimes having new layers come in shifts underlying layers you think are stable. It’s necessarily a bad thing or even that painful. It’s just like finding that you’ve been wearing shoes to tight. At first, your feet may ache with the increased blood flow. It’s like when you sat hunched in one position for far to long and you feel that ache and stiffness as you get up to stretch. That’s what I feel like right now.
