Perpetually Becoming

YOU. An easier way to be.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

You are in a perpetual state of becoming.

You’re never done.

You never stop becoming.

Must you be so careful in choosing the perfect outfit, hairstyle, or furnishing?  Car, home, or vacation?  Job,  friend, or relationship? 

Do you believe there’s only one “right” one, and that  you must find “it?” 

Do you really believe there is “the one?” 

Are you to have only one

Are you to have it permanently?

Never to expand, explore, experience?

No wonder you struggle.

No wonder you suffer.

YOU are forever changing.

Continually giving birth to your NEW self.

Eternally pregnant with NEW possibilities, desires, dreams.

In truth, YOU are a creative genius.

Always creating what you’ll be, have, or do next.   Your next experience.

Yet you hold so tightly.  Trying to hold it all still.  Keep the world from turning.

Afraid of the unknown.  Afraid to feel.

The world, and you, are always changing.  Endlessly Evolving. Transforming.  Perpetually in motion.

You  are becoming someone new. 


And again.

Permit yourself to change your mind.  To change your plan.  To change your desire.

Allow yourself to flow with yourself.  

Your natural momentum.

Drop your oars.

And float.

You’ll be amazed at what comes to you.
