Who I Am…

Get over who you were…and…be who you are…that’s a quote from… Jane CarrollBecoming Bertha…which will be released shortly…but…it’s more than that… it’s the words that…Bertha…has been whisper-shouting to me…for several days…

I suppose it’s because…my life has changed in many ways…over the last few months…and now that things have settled down…I keep trying to go back to who I was before the changes…but…I can’t quite seem to get there…I can’t quite get the same routines down…

Bertha…reminds me…change is movement…change is growth…change is change…and…I am changed…I no longer fit the routines that once served me…it’s time to release them…time to let them go…time to be who I am…right now…today…

Gardening Today…

It seems my life is expanding…a good thing…a very good thing…but…it feels a little overwhelming…wondering…how…the expansion will…fit into my life…

Bertha…reminds me that it is like…Mama’s garden…there are only so many rows…and…so much room on each row…if she wants to add more plants…she needs to pull up something else…preferably something that is no longer productive…but…regardless…something has to go…plants need enough space to flourish…

She says…it’s the same in my life…I can’t just stuff more into every day…I have to…reconsider…repurpose…and…relegate…then…everything will be just fine…

Hmmm…that makes sense…I guess…I’ll be working in my…garden
