Before the paradigm shift that revolutionized her life, she wanted more than anything to be successful. She blarred her trumpet and searched for treasures in indigo fields until suddenly, she no longer had a supreme hunger for noteriety. She became solely and deliberately focused on being whole. It looked as though she had changed her mind or given up on a dream, but in actuality, she saved herself.
The paradigm shifting of self
A fundamental change. Those who experience this shift usually do so around the time they’re becoming big-famous or little-famous and then it happens: they fall inward. They realize that while the-person-they-are- becoming may be “securing the bag”…they are losing themselves in the process. Depending on how severe the situation may be, they may have to undergo drastic change immediately… eventually.
When she came to herself, she knew that the cost of notoriety was too big– so she stopped paying the price and found healthier ways to defeat the giants.
She is reclaiming those indigo fields.
She is repenting.
She is reconciling.
She is restoring her home.
Her pathway to the promise is sometimes cold and lonely.
Her fears are exposed.
But she is surrendering everything,
and lacking nothing.
The above is only one of my personal stories of change expressed by way of prose-poetry.
It is my present, metaphysical manifestation of growth, showing “where I am” in my life.
It’s a place and a season where people most likely watch you and wonder, “Is she alright?” “What happened to her?” “She used to… but now she…”
Change prompts people to observe and wonder.
Your openness to change can ensure the longevity of health, wellness, social agility, marital bonds, and even help you avoid career traps.
I’ve said it in previous blogs and I will say it again. Consistency works, but our openness to change is necessary.
More than physical/tangible…
Change is earthy, inherently beautiful, and unique… just like my Karlee. ❤
