I am always deconstructing.
Myself. This life. Ways of being and relationships. How the world works and why things are the way they are. Rules. Methods. Truths I hold dear and the truths of others.
Reducing things down to their constituent parts in order to make sense of them, reinterpret them, reconstruct them, or demolish them entirely. “No one has ever asked me that… that’s a really good question… I’ve never thought about it.” I hear these from people all the time. Clients and colleagues. Friends and family. Sweet souls sitting next to me in airplanes and at nail salons. Because you’ll tell me a thing and my instinct will be to pick it apart… not because it’s bad or wrong, but because I want to understand. Who you are, what makes you tick, and why you do the things you do.
Maybe I ‘overthink’ things as many have told me, but I honestly don’t feel like most think through things enough. They just do things the way they do, because that’s how things have always been done. They never thought to ask questions or understand why. It’s what people do, so they will do it too.
Be brave and ask questions.
Hard ones, scary ones, deep ones.
Of yourself, those around you, and this life.
As often as you possibly can.
Seek to deconstruct everything you do, believe, choose to be, and buy into… right down to the very bones that make it so… and decide what’s actually real and true for you. Even if that means abandoning it altogether, or rebuilding it in a way that’s never been done.
I promise your life will begin to become far more magical and aligned, despite the dismantling and destruction that may come first. 💕
