The Old Me Is The New Me


Tomorrow is the first day of a brand new year. Tomorrow you get to become anyone in the world that you wish. Who are you? You can choose to by anyone, alive today or someone gone long ago. If you decide to stay “you” share your rationale.Photographers, artists, poets: show us METAMORPHOSIS.

Great topic.  I dont really want to be anybody else, it’s been hard enough getting to be me. Plus, I’ve learned that everybody has a cross to bear, we all suffer from grief and illness one way or another. I’m looking forward to being me…. the old me. My recovery has been slow, but here I am. There’s some newness too. I hope to be more considerate, more forgiving and less self centred.

Having said that, there’s the blog… self centred or what?  Since I began in March I’ve had 3200 views, almost 1500 likes and 140 followers.  Thanks guys! It’s been appreciated. I’ve had lots of nice comments… I dont always reply, but I’ve loved them all. Have a good New Year….. I know it will be better than the last one!

What better to put here than a door?  A beautiful old portal into another new world.

  1. I know just what you mean when you say it’s hard enough to be who you were. Life changes you, but not always in a good way. Happy changing back!
