It's difficult waking up one morning and realizing you're someone you never intended to be. Not the totality of me, but this one portion. A significant sized aspect of my personality, my life, has been wrapped up in a place I never meant to experience.
All week I've been thinking about the exchange between Shrek and Donkey. You know, the one about onions and cake and parfaits?
People are like ogres and onions. So are relationships. Some of the layers are good and some are, well, not so good. Right now I'm riding out a tough layer, but I'm staying the course because I remember all the good layers.
Most journeys are like onions. They have layers, and it's not until some time has passed that we can look back and see the totality and how it all fit together to form the whole. And all those cliched sayings are true --
Life is a journey.
It's not about the destination. It's about the journey.
Some of those layers are just harder to digest than others.
