it reminds me of a quote i scribbled into a journal at least ten years ago when i was doing the artist's way by julia cameron...
as i approach the age at which julia started cooking, i am more and more amazed at the fresh new adventures that life continues to bring.
so, i am trying new skills. letting go of attempting to have life 'figured out.' reinventing myself and my work. experiencing various forms of rebirth over and over again.
in the second half of my fourth decade, i am making a conscious effort to embrace the mind of a beginner.
i think it's important to state this because the mind can play funny little games when thinking about trying something for the first time. my own brain becomes a tricksy pixie when i approach something i have never done before, especially as i get older.
which is why i want to purposefully keep that kind of thinking in check, throw caution to the wind, and journey into life's newness with an open heart.
