Our lives are constantly changing as we navigate what we can and can’t control. Every day there is a new beginning and ending—in big and small ways. We fall in love. We lose an eyelash. Write a poem about how your life is changing. Be specific. Change is complex and emotional on any level because it reminds us of our humanity—and of our mortality. Get writing.



I believe that change is doable but difficult. The most change that has happened in my life is reconnecting with my mother again. I know who I am because I know my mother. Be still be free, let go.
