Sometimes life evolves around us.
All the sudden we're standing in a shitstorm of pain and dismay
...and we didn't even know it was coming.
We don't even get a choice. It just happens.
But- If we are really living and really paying attention...we will change with it.
We will transform from one thing to another...
Sometimes it is a quick painless change...
We have to crumble to rebuild.....
That is the beauty of life.
In those moments...we have choices.
We can choose to stay there and sink in it...
We rise and come clean.
We have to choose to shed and change...
We have to choose to see the light inside of ourselves.
We have to relish in the mud and growth.
Without the pain...there is no pleasure.
Without the old..there is no new.
Without the mess...there is no truth.
Without the hurt..there is no healing.
We change. We evolve. We rise.
