Life is a rollercoaster chocolate box that dishes one out a random mix of stuff and sometimes pulls back from you entirely and leaves one confused and bemused.
However at least with age one gains a little more perspective and the ability (as a woman) to control (albeit not entirely) one’s emotions. And this is like pure gold. The ability to step back (so to speak figuratively) and “cognitively” digest things and “prepare” a cold clever response that may well be unexpected and certainly perplexes the individual perpetuating the patriachy.
The rollercoaster is often a fixed item over which control is not had. However it seems that later on in life one is able to “hover” above the chaos for milliseconds that are little bursts of miracle moments.
Plain site also becomes a more plain. Which seems crazy but somehow the blinders of youth really do just that and as the time and clock tick the site improves – at least the sight of the soul 🙂
And for this I am grateful 🙂
