Musings on the Difficulty of Changes in Life

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes” ~Proust

I am in a new chapter of my life but sometimes, I feel that I am not ready to deal with everything that is coming my way.  Maybe it is because I am still seeing with the eyes of the past and I haven’t yet changed my mindset to see with the eyes of the future.  I can’t see what I’ve been looking at all my life any differently than before and maybe because of that, I still feel that I haven’t changed and that I’m not ready to change.

I’m not really sure how to go about getting a new set of eyes though.  Seems tricky (and kind of gory in a sense).  I fear that it may never come and I’ll be stuck in life looking through the eyes of a young woman and trapped in the body and expectations and responsibilities of a much older woman.
