I have been fidgety lately. I don't know if it the approaching summer days and my impatience for them to arrive, or if the currents in my life are shifting direction. I am just waiting for something...anything.
Q came home yesterday after wrapping up his first year of college. Those words feel foreign to type, think and even speak. It must be because college is still such a part of my own life that it seems impossible that he's reached this point. College changed me, shaping me into someone more confident and secure.
You begin to question the very things that you feared and find the answers that feel comfortable within your own skin. I can only hope that Q is experiencing the same sensation...the feeling of being free in an atmosphere that provokes you in all directions, then steers you toward your own truths.
I love my baby bird with all I am worth, but his wings have spread and he has taken flight. His dreams are on the horizon and now it is time to bring mine back out into the light, brush them off and move forward. Careful what you wish for...I'm already knocking on wood.
This song reflects my current wine enhanced mood....
