The 40 Year Old Bat Mitzvah

Life Is a Series of Transitions

Posted in philosophizing by Juliet on April 9, 2010

Lately my favorite TV genre is “scientific apocalyptic”: asteroids hitting the earth; super-volcanoes under the ocean; disappearing gravity due to slower rate of planetary rotation. You know, your typical cheery fare.

If you think about it too much, it can get depressing.

The world — at least the world as we know it — is going to end.

It’s only a matter of time.

The earth is not fixed in one permanent state. It’s changing all the time. And that’s how life is. Literally for decades I’ve felt like I’m in various stages of transition. I keep waiting for “things to settle down” and “get back to normal.”

There is no normal; to live is to grow, and to grow is to change, to move through an endless series of transitions from our first breath to our last. Whenever that may be.
