I. Am. In love…with this manifesto from the makers of sugru which, you guessed it, is a product for fixing things. But never mind all of that. They’ve just fixed my life — or explained my own unexamined efforts to fix it myself in 12 steps or less. I’m particularly fond of numbers 1, 3 and 8, which I’ll riff on a bit just for fun.

Today I had an amazing conversation with my friend C, who is my sister for life. It was one of those conversations that is only possible because of all the conversation that came before over the long 20 years of our friendship. The kind of conversation where you know, and are fully known. Much of that conversation will remain hidden-away in the vaults — at least for now — but one part is worth sharing with you: the part of the conversation where we reflected on the wisdom of letting life have her way with you. She’s going to anyway, and the less you resist, the more likely it is that she’ll dump you out on some hospitable shore. With your direction thus set by whomever it is that’s in charge of such things, you can then proceed with your hard-working, hustling ways, which you were going to do anyway, but what a relief to do it with the certainty that you are headed the right way.

The future begins now. In the very moment we’re living in. It’s a place ripe and full of possibility. A place where you can be anything you dream, provided your dreams are grounded and real. The mandate that you make our dreams grounded and real is not meant to shrink the size of your dreams. It’s meant to give you the fuel you need to fly, not just in your mind’s eye, but in the world, where the real excitement takes place.

I found this quote on For The Love Of Blog, the blog of fashion brand Alice & Olivia, and fell in love with it. It’s a sassy take on a deeper sentiment that’s worth reflecting on as we near the end of another year: that getting the life your soul wants, the life you were born for, takes boldness, and moxie, and the willingness to face down anything that gets in your way.

This has been an interesting year of change. I’m becoming the person I most want to be, the person I’ve always secretly been deep down inside (or not so secretly according to my very best friends, who’ve always known who I was and were just waiting for me to catch up). As I morph more into my true self, I’ve found that my old things don’t fit the way they used to. Ideas I once lived by suddenly sound like tensor calculus rendered in Wolof (translation: like something I don’t understand, spoken in a language I do not speak), and people I once felt deeply bonded too suddenly feel like relics from a former life.
