In the words of Brian Johnson from the John Hughs movie, The Breakfast Club “You see us as you want to see us- in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions.”

Somedays we just need to remind ourselves  that within each of us is a Brain, an Athlete, a Basket Case, a Princess and a Criminal. 

This week I have been cruising through the world with my outer shell  mismatched to my inner self.  This week I have had to settle into the discomfort of change and admit that change is not a symmetrical or graceful process.

I keep trying to remind myself that without the light there is no shadow.  And through shadowy times it is my responsibility as an adult to look for and be grateful for the light surrounding me.  It is so easy to get stuck in what appears to not be working and miss all of the things that are going so well around me.  To have fun and smile even when things seem imperfect and parts of myself frustrate and defy me.
