I took this photo of an exit sign today. It made me laugh at myself as I really feel I am the embodiment of this little green person dashing out the door.
I started to think about how I don’t like to get myself into anything I can’t get out of.
That’s why I don’t have kids.
That’s why I don’t have tattoos.
I always have an escape plan.
I always like to know where the exits are.
After all, if I never leave something behind, how will I know what else is out there?
And I don’t believe there is any shame in changing my mind or wanting out of something I got into.
My mind was not meant to be made UP. It was meant to be made OUT.
Embracing the impermanence of life and all things & people within it, is the only way to avoid unnecessary suffering.
But don’t get me wrong..
I still love fiercely
And I still hurt deeply
I’ve just learnt to run when it’s time to go
Which helps me to recover quickly
So that I can do it all over again!
Helps to know where the exit signs are
