You ever have one of those days when you realize that you’re never, ever going to look like yourself again?

Okay, that’s not the best example. Try this one:

I don’t even look like I’m related to the person I was ten years ago. I look a little bit like I might have consumed her. Like some sort of parasite.

Old pictures are depressing.

  1. Or you could see yourself as the person who has evolved to deal with the change. You’re a wife, a mother, a good person. None of us are who we were ten years ago- thank God. Living is a fluid thing. Not a static thing. If it were a static thing there would be far less beauty and joy to be found.

    Take a look at you today. The good, the bad, they all will get swallowed up and melded into the person you’re going to become in another ten years. That person is going to depend on the whole package of you today, just as you today depends on that package of you ten years ago. If not for the pain, could you appreciate your happiness as deeply? If not for the youth (rebellious or not), could you look at the sleeping face of your child/partner and wonder how you managed to qualify for their love and affection? What power of the universe sent them into your life? …I’m trying to offer up what I tell myself when I’m in a funk, not come over as preachy to you… hope I succeeded.
