About this change artist
Two-and-a-half years ago, I had a husband, a house, two children. Then we got a dog and all hell broke loose. Now, I’m getting a divorce, I need to find a new place to live, and need not only a job – but an entirely new career. Luckily, I still have the important people: the kids, the dog, me. I have my life, even though it doesn’t look like I expect it too.
Most of the time…. I don’t like it. I would rather stay in bed and eat bon bons. Yet I do like life – and as I’m learning, life is change – all the time, and in every way. When it stops changing, then I’m done. Burn me and scatter the ashes somewhere pretty. What’s to be done? On many days, I have to act “as if.” As if change is what I long for. As if metamorphosis is frozen yogurt and not the hair-splitting, limb-rending process I seem to experience. Hence, I name myself the Change Artist. I embrace transition. I embrace flux. I embrace the promise, the beauty, the just-plain awesomness of change.
My blog records my efforts to welcome change, day-by day, as I stumble through this rowdy life. For a little more “about” click here. I invite you to share my practice. If you are interested, click “follow” and then you will be notified when I post a new post. And since, in truth, we are all change artists, I invite you to share in return. Please leave comments, questions, your own anecdotes. I can’t wait to hear how your story intersects, reflects, or otherwise changes (ha!) mine.
