Life is a wheel
As I sit here now I realize how true that statement is. We are at one time children living our lives with little idea of what to expect because we have never lived before.
We don’t know what’s supposed to be now or what’s supposed to be next.
We live wanting guidance but at the same time not wanting anyone to tell us what to do because we think we know when we know nothing, not really.
We know we are here and we know we are small
We know we have to follow directions and do it right so the big people won’t get mad at us and give us less directions allowing us a little more freedom, freedom we crave to keep the wheel turning if we ever want to get to be the big people giving the little people directions, and we want that so bad when we are little people don’t we?
I remember being the little person and I was not a fan. I always wanted to be the big person, the one to give the directions. I think it’s because I have too may bad memories about being the little person, the vulnerable one, the one without power taking bad directions that I could not deviate from.
When I became the big person I almost became the dictator, before the dream that is. the dream where my son was begging for my help because my mom was threatening to hit him.
How I cried after that dream.
How I changed.
I broke the cycle in so many pieces it can never be put back together.
I pulverized it and crushed it into so much dust that its molecules could never be reconstructed.
I took myself and rebuilt myself. It was not easy, I’d been scattered.
As I found the pieces I sewed them together with golden thread, the good moments.
I sewed all my broken pieces, it took years but I and built a better me, a stronger version infused with the little person and wrote my own directions.
