Look, this is going to be short or not, but it comes from the knowing and the experience of a person who keeps on truckin on, okay I'm being light, but it's damn serious in the best way. IT IS NEVER OVER. Ever.
I have "reinvented" myself more times than some, but I don't actually believe I was reinventing—I was expressing, shedding, expanding, growing, learning—all of those beautifying experiences that occur FOREVER, not just when you reach the magical age of adulthood (when is that age? I'm afraid I may have missed the memo.). Magic exists just like it did when we were kids. We've been force fed for too long to believe that the good ends as we get older, and the responsibility word becomes the norm. Responsibility and fun can coexist without a problem, but we have to allow it to be.
I freakout and have doubts just like the next person, but I continuously turn my focus to what it is I do want and what I want to create. Some days, I can't get there, and those are the days I watch YouTube videos of animals doing funny things or every lip sync battle ever (actually, I do those things when I feel good, as well). I'm practicing being easier on myself and practicing the art of not feeding into the drama of others, which for me takes great focus, because I easily take on the energy of others—automatic pilot, almost, but the focus of moving towards what I want is worth all of the examination and the ridicule from those who don't get it.
But, there are those who are rallying for your journey. There are people who are part of a new tribe, ones who, too, want to shed what the collective feels is right. You'll pick them up along the way. Trust me. You are a part of my tribe, always, no matter what.
You be your glorious and most awesome self, and know that it's never, ever over, and that it's supposed to be freaking fun!
Much love to you!
