Life as a Wrapped Package

December 26, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Life is a gift.  And you as a person is the package.  I think each person determines what the packaging of this gift is like by how they act.  Some people appear to be like baking soda and vinegar in an overflowing bottle of continuous out spilling of a mess kind of package.  Others are tightly taped up, relatively perfect and appearing untouched by the world, never really showing what is inside.  I'd like to think that my package is somewhere between these two, but more like a Christmas present.  It's wrapped in paper that is imperfectly taped to cover perfectly all that can only be seen if I allow myself to be given.  You look at the package guessing what's inside but not really knowing until it is open.  And even then, it takes time to truly appreciate what's in the package.  Life is like that too.  Life is given to us and we look at it like a package thinking about what we might want it to be on the inside.  Sometimes there is a feeling of anticipation.  Sometimes we might be thinking about what we need to give back.  Always I hope that the unfolding brings what you want, need or don't know you need so that you can become more fully you as the layers of your packaging changes with time.
