We can’t get away from ourselves, at least not entirely. ….
There is no rule that says I have to be and think and act the same way my whole life. Today is a clean slate. I can be who I want to be.
This struck a chord with me, especially the last part. Every day of my life/every phase of my life has been a clean slate and I have written onto that slate the ME I wanted to be; for the most part anyway. Some days I want to be this woman in long flowing skirts, with wildly colored hair and lots of knowledge to share. I have the skirts; I look like crap in them!!! I have almost white hair that would color up wildly-so why not? Fear of what others will think? Fear my one or two good friends won’t want to be seen with me? My grand (16 year old) colors her hair every color she desires. I love that freedom. Knowledge, I have a bit, but forget more than I know.
I may begin to re-invent ME and not worry about others think!!!! It is, after all, a clean slate and for that I am thankful.
