Unfinished

Your whole LIFE is unfinished!

She couldn’t get the words out of her head. It wasn’t meant as a compliment. And it ate at her. Not all the time … but she couldn’t pretend that it hadn’t bothered her. At first she let it get her down. She had derailed herself and she knew it.

And then she let those words derail herself even more.

Until one day when she realized that maybe it wasn’t a curse after all. Not always finishing things. Maybe it’s a blessing really. Because if your entire life was finished, well then what else would there be?

She decided to embrace the work in progress that she was.

This time there would be no public resolutions for the new year. After all, they were just always a slightly different version from the year before. Instead, she wrote it all down for herself only and made a decision.

That things would be different.

That things would get finished.

But there would also be so many new things started. And so much more of what she had missed.
