crossing the finish line

Waking up

Waking up is hard.

No I’m not just talking about the waking up when your alarm goes off on Monday morning. I am speaking about a deeper awakening.

I have been asleep…for many, many years. Now I’m waking up and it’s hard. It’s painful. The sculpture, The Awakening, captures the pain that I feel as I wake up. The pain of knowing that new people will disappoint you. The pain of knowing that you will have to endure lots of heartache before finding peace and happiness. The pain of wishing that you were still asleep but knowing that it isn’t a way to really live.

Waking up is hard, yet I can’t imagine the alternative.
