Weathering

You have to leave the city of your comfort
and go into the wilderness of your intuition.
What you'll discover will be wonderful.
What you'll discover is yourself.
~Alan Alda

I have been feeling a new sense of self-realization.
Maybe because I've changed so much through trials
that I didn't recognize this new self.

It's a strange phenomena to watch....
becoming a different person in front of your own eyes.

Your barn shots are often my favorite, and this one does NOT disappoint.

I love you, Chasity, old self, new self, yourself.

Very nice...I'm not sure what I like more, the texture, the tree or the barn. All fit perfectly together in this photo. Great Job~ Angie

Wonderful photo and change which transpires and in front of your own eyes is phenomenal indeed. I call this type of change my "WOW" feeling, for lack of better terminology. I've also found that the sky is the limit and we can be whomever we choose to be. Life is amazing when we allow it to happen. Happy growth to you Chas! :-)

Tracy said...

Beautiful insights, Chas! I just came across that quote by Alan Alda last week--much food for thought! :o) Are you happy with the NEW you? ((HUGS))

~i couldn't agree more this this quote you shared...when we leave...wander to the woods...in silence we always discover something new that has been lying deep down...may you continue to grow and thrive and embrace the beautiful changes that are upon you...gorgeous photo...warm wishes and brightest blessings~

Been there with someone (actually more than one someone) I dearly loved, too, Chas, so I can identify. I think this is particularly true when it's a fiery trial. The trick is not to lose the part of you that everyone adores most, but I don't think you are in danger of that if your blog is any indication. :-)

Love this photo. It's one of my favorites.

XO,

Sheila :-)
