"Patterned Response"

65.00

In mid-life, I’ve read about (and happen to agree with) the idea that we start to re-evaluate the things we want for ourselves because time starts to feel more limited. We also tend to review the patterns that were set by our family of origin and decide upon whether we need to break-free of these recurring behaviors, habits or routines.  Just like intuiting the next move for an in-progress collage, I have to look at the past layers to figure out how to proceed.  True growth begins when I can shed a past (of habitual patterns) that wasn’t serving me to start anew.  And just like with collage, those fundamental layers are still present, they’re just covered over or serving as the base on which something entirely different has surfaced.
