Chapters of my Life
And what a chapter it has been! This is the chapter of my life where the pot thickened. I am so attached to this story, my story that I have been reading and re-reading this chapter over several decades without realizing that it's time to turn to the other chapters of the book of Carlitos.
"But you love this story" my ego says , " you know it by heart with all the familiar pains and suffering. Why, turn the page into a new chapter? You don't know what's ahead." Yeah, I know it pretty well, but this chapter does not define me , this is not the end of my story. In fact, what if there is no end of the story but a journey into self-love, into growth that is always evolving, always growing? I think that's a better twist of the plot for this "story".
I think I am close this book for now, put some cliff notes together so I make sure I apply what I've learned, and focus on leading a life out of love, kindness and service.
