Starting A New Draft

By In Postmortem

Well, here I am, standing on the precipice of a new decade, and I can’t help but think about the previous draft of my life. You know, the version of me that stumbled through the years, lost in a maze of interests and pursuits, sometimes losing sight of what truly mattered. As I gaze back at those years, I’m hit with a sudden realization: it’s time to edit myself into a more refined version, one that’s chiseled and unburdened by the weight of my past.

I’ve decided to start anew, to close the book on that previous draft and begin writing the next chapter of my life. And this time, I’m dedicating myself wholeheartedly to my art and writing craft. Gone are the days of being torn between a dozen different interests, half-heartedly dabbling in each. It’s time to focus, to truly unearth the essence of who I am through the power of my creations.

This new draft isn’t just about rearranging the furniture of my life; it’s about stripping away the unnecessary layers and distractions that have clouded my true identity. I’ve realized that in order to fully embrace who I am, I must be willing to let go of the things that no longer serve me. And so, with a deep breath and an open heart, I bid farewell to the outdated versions of myself, the ones that held me back and weighed me down.

Catharsis – that’s the word I’d use to describe this process. The act of letting go, of releasing the worries and concerns that have haunted me for so long, has been nothing short of liberating. I feel lighter, more focused, and ready to face the future with a renewed sense of purpose.

But this new draft is about more than just refining my identity and shedding the past. It’s about living life deliberately, not through accident or circumstance. It’s about waking up each day and choosing, with intention, the person I want to be and the mark I want to leave on this world. No more drifting through life, aimlessly bouncing from one pursuit to another; it’s time to take the reins and steer my life in the direction I truly desire.

As I embark on this journey of self-discovery and intentional living, I know there will be challenges and obstacles to overcome. But armed with the knowledge and experience of my previous draft, I am ready to face them head-on. Because in the end, our lives are nothing more than a series of drafts, each one a little better, a little truer, than the last. And I’m excited to see what the next draft of my life has in store.

Forever in metamorphosis,
