100 Words: Give It To The River

 

The more I step away from an old way of being, the easier it gets. At first, though, it can feel harsh, impossible, too difficult.

So, I breathe deeply, and sit with the change-swirl, inner opinions. There’s no shortcut. Into the water I go, not around it, and let the wise river take me.  

Changing habits is drastic to all the parts of me that learned the old way. These parts need time to shift. I’m not just changing my mind. Every cell is learning the new way.

Be steady, I say to myself. Be aware, awake, drenched in light.

    Thank you for this. In so many ways that old saying “Wherever I go, there I am.” still rules my days. Old ways die hard.

    Love you,
    Liz

      They do. I’m learning to treat old ways more gently. As in take them by the hand and say, “this way, honey… we’re going this way…” It works better. Love you, too.

      Thanks, Joyce. I find the photos on Pixabay.com. You can use a photo free, or pay the photographer “a cup of coffee” or more. You choose. It’s a great site.
