Life is constantly about Transformation. For me, it’s been a constant one the past few months. My last post was on July 31. Why so long since my last post? Change. Lots of change. A relocation from Arizona to Nevada. Re-homing my beloved dog and cat. A 6,000 mile road-trip from Nevada to Florida and back. A trip home to Oregon to visit family and friends. And now thinking about what I want to do when I grow up. Okay, that last statement was a joke since I came into this world in 1955. I have decided that NOW is the time for me to sit down on a regular basis and express myself through writing. Who knows what I’ll discover about myself and others along the way.
Growing is the biggest part of Transformation. Self-growth, self-realization, self-transformation. It doesn’t matter what you call it, it’s all the same thing. The opportunity to get your mind and your fingers working together. The opportunity to express yourself and to discover new things.
Transformation: A noun meaning:
- The act or process of transforming
- The state of being transformed
- Change in form, appearance, nature or character.
Wait a minute…number 3. What do you mean the change in form, appearance, nature or character. You mean I CAN DO THAT? Damn straight you can (says my inner child). Well okay, how do I go about doing that (I ask my inner child). By ALLOWING yourself to do just that. Forget about what you’ve been taught (someone else’s rules). Forget about trying to please someone else (or lots of someone else’s). Take a deep breath. Sit back and let your mind and fingers communicate.
I looked up a few Synonyms for Transformation. Words like renewal, conversion, metamorphosis, revolution, shift, alteration, changeover, switch, flip-flop (not the kind you wear), transmutation and radical change were just a few. That sounds a bit daunting but exciting at the same time. I like this idea of Transformation. Think I’ll take the time and explore my options.
Life is great!
