Okay, Rach. What the heck is NaNo?
Sounds like something from Mork and Mindy, doesn’t it?
There is growth through change. The towering maple tree in my backyard exposes its buds as it thrusts its limbs towards blue skies. It confirms that we are surrounded by growth and that we are always on the cusp of seasonal change.
“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”
I stretch towards the sky and inhale–exposed to the fresh air and sunlight. I feel myself growing out of the exoskeleton of my previous life. You see, I am growing because I am finally living. I am growing because I am changing. I am changing because I’ve opened myself to learning through my writing and through taking risks. I am exposing my innermost being. I will continue to hurl myself at the world.
I am on the cusp of another victory.
