Sometimes I have to step of my skin. Sometimes I have to step outside of my life and see my reflection in the mirror. What do I see? Who is that person looking back at me? Will I like her? Would I be proud to be her? Would I want her for a friend, daughter, sister, employee, nurse, my life partner…….?
I’ve been caught in a swirl of rote, unable or unwilling to step off the treadmill. I’ve been trapped in this cul-de-sac of life, doing by memory, living by habit, afraid to do different. Now that I have seen myself and my life reflected back at me, it is time to act. It is time to do different. It is time to do better.
