How to Welcome Change.

“There’s little more satisfying than the feeling that at last you’ve taken ownership of yourself.” ~ Marianne Williamson

There comes a time.

You set yesterday aside,
Softly.

The thing you held;
Coveted.

Soft addictions cling like
Teddy Bears carried
Into adulthood.

Until you leave them.
Without tears.
Or fanfare.

There comes a time.

You pick up new habits
The way you used to
Lovers in bars.

It’s a new day.
You delight in what’s
Sweet, soulful, and true.

Your radiance.
In the mirror.

  1. Lovely and true, Alice! I’m in the phase of life where I’m passing on my things I’ve clung to for years, but not needing anymore. What a liberation, it feels like! 🙂 And it’s a shedding that can happen over a lifetime. Cheers!
