I have this feeling that 30 or so years from now, should I still be kicking around, I’m going to be wrestling with the same existential crisis: the joy and the dread that learning never ends.
The dread: How is that I’ve come this far and still have so far to go?
The joy: How is it that I am so lucky to have the opportunity, the invitation, the opening up, the chance to live into an even more complete understanding of my experience?
No one, not a single person, said it was going to be easy. Just that it would be possible.
And no matter how uncomfortable it is to admit it, they were right.
