lindsey.a.elliott Every day — silently, and without notice — we cross invisible thresholds to who we are becoming. It explains that feeling of waking up and not recognizing your life, or how you got there. A disorientation I often feel in the craze of entrepreneurship. These words from David Whyte reminded me to take notice — who is it you are becoming today?
|| SOMETIMES || Sometimes⠀ if you move carefully⠀ through the forest⠀ breathing⠀ like the ones⠀ in the old stories⠀ who could cross⠀ a shimmering bed of dry leaves⠀ without a sound, ⠀ you come⠀ to a place⠀ whose only task⠀ is to trouble you⠀ with tiny⠀ but frightening requests⠀ conceived out of nowhere⠀ but in this place⠀ beginning to lead everywhere.⠀ Requests to stop what⠀ you are doing right now,⠀ and⠀ to stop what you⠀ are becoming⠀ while you do it,⠀ questions⠀ that can make⠀ or unmake⠀ a life,⠀ questions⠀ that have patiently⠀ waited for you,⠀ questions⠀ that have no right⠀ to go away.⠀ - David Whyte
