Being Of Use

Think Kit, Day 6.

I suspect all of us wait for that moment in our lives when we finally understand why we are the person that we are. (Maybe that moment never comes. Maybe it comes again and again. I don’t know.)

I had my moment of understanding this year, last month. A situation occurred, and I snapped into something of a Jackie-autopilot that I noted and analyzed later, when I had it pointed out to me. I had known what I needed to do. And I had known that I needed to be the one to do it.

Today that understanding-of-self-and-role is catching up with me. Finding my right place in the community that is the people comprising this situation doesn’t preclude me from being absolutely wiped out on a particularly taxing day. Today was a taxing day. I am barely holding my thoughts together at this point; I am that tired.

(I will redact this post later if it is found to make no sense.)

But, to the point, and the goal, of the prompt–How do you want to get involved in your community this coming year?–I don’t want to. But I will, because my involvement–my being; my being me–continues to be of use.
