on rebirth, on reinvention

It's my job to invent something better. I get to cut myself out of stone—no restraints or conditions with all possibilities exposed, considered, tossed about. I get to polish the parts that serve me and chisel away the parts that don't. I want to be fearless about it. Whether it's the house I live in, the friends I lean toward, the career I invest in, the partnership I build, I want to actively, intentionally say "yes" to the next chapter. I want to be so excited that I can't wait to turn the page. I want to race toward it—rage even. The work begins today.
