For me, introspection is key to growth, expansion, development and totally embracing oneself. Still, I believe maturation comes from our own experiences and those lessons we learn from those who come before us. My mother, the late Barbara A. Whitaker-Jones always told me to never say never but at some point since she transitioned I’ve found myself speaking exactly that.
Only after careful thought, consideration and the awakening of my soul, where the conscious and unconscious both met and collided, did it become necessary for me to create a standard to live by. This sort of growth requires the affirmative over the negatives of never.
