“She has gone off the deep end” words muttered amongst my small conservative community when I jumped into a more free and creative life. A life not understood by their own tic tock realities.
I can see their concern was coming from a place of love but my heart could not listen. It was aching to create my way out of the conservative haze of their reality and into a journey of clarity that could only happen through creating my own reality. Learning and sorting and structuring something new that made sense to my free spirited truth.
Instead of fearfully keeping my self safe in the shallow end I jumped into the deep end and learned how to swim. So really, much to their dismay, they were right.
