quiet

i learned some unexpected things over the past year. i’ve learned a little more about how to be quiet and still. a little more about letting go. a little more about losing expectation and keeping anticipation. i’ve seen a little more wonder. i’ve been a lot more afraid. i’ve seen through some of my lies and half-truths and been tricked by my new ones.

i’ll forget this again and again and again. that i don’t have to understand. that forever and temporary are equally real.

i hope that when i look back on 2013, i can say that i loved more wholly, that i wept and danced when i needed to, that i learned a little more about how to set the boundaries and find the spaces.
