Day 281: The Possibility Of Change

As we live our lives we are constructing a reality around ourselves. It is complex and simple all at the same time. In our own eyes we are the center of a story and that is indeed true, everyone who is living a life is the main character of their very own story. How beautiful and terrifying it is to know that.

The lives we construct around ourselves are made up of every decision we have ever made and every path we have ever decided to walk down. Our story is created because our past comes together to construct our present and we then walk in the direction we desire to see our future go in. Our reality is formed because of the things we have been through.

However, every so often, we reach a point in our lives when we decide to start a new chapter. To begin again. We desire a clean slate and a fresh start in order to pursue the life we want to see around us. This can happen for many, many reasons and it can happen more than once in our lives.

Realizations that we are not where we desire to be can lead to this desire for a new life. Striving after new and lofty goals can also cause this. Even moving on from certain relationships can make us realize the need to assess the life we are living and start looking for change. There are many factors for why we want a clean slate and for everyone it is different.

At any moment in our day to day life, we can look around and start to peel back the layers of our reality. Construction something new often means deconstructing that which was there before. It means changing habits, shifting your perspective, and really drilling down on your life in order to pursue the new life you want to be living. We build many layers over time, but the best way to peel them back is to just begin.

Change is possible at any moment during your lifetime. You can easily change everything when you are eighteen as when you are eighty. Change does not have an age limit or time frame it needs to be accomplished in. It can happen no matter where you are in your journey and can happen multiple times along that path you are walking.

Life should be lived to the absolute fullest and if you make the realization that you are not living it that way, all you have to do is seek change. Be bold enough to deconstruct your current reality by stripping away the unwanted layers in order to reveal a clean slate. Once there, anything and everything is possible, all it takes is the realization that you can change for the better.

Your future and your life is yours, do not waste them by living in a way that is not in line with your dreams.

Until Next Time,
Lillian Merritt

Light spills in from the unmarked canvas and the layers are rolled back to let more and more spill into the frame. Reality shifts and crumbles at the slightest touch of change.
