Today I am 24
And I was going to write a long post about all I’ve learned, who I am and how grateful I am for this journey but instead I will share this poem:
She is more chaos than calm
She is more dysfunction than discipline
But she has no fear because this is what the journey asks of her.
She asked, ‘who am I?” and the journey showed her how to shed
She asked, “what does this world need from me” and the journey taught her to release
Each day, she is releasing old bits of herself that no longer have a home in her life.
Each day, she is shedding the extra weight that she cannot carry on this journey.
She is heavy and overwhelmed.
She is light and free.
Each day feels like war
Because she is shedding and becoming.
Yet, through the chaos, she is grateful
For this sacred metamorphosis
