The person you were is dead. The person you are is alive.
Shed your yesterday’s skin. Because that’s all it was – a skin. The real stuff is far deeper. And that’s going nowhere.
So get to know who you are today. Let your new skin surprise you.
Don’t get attached to whoever you are today – before long, this version of you must die too, to make way for who you’ll be tomorrow.
Let the skin you wake up in each day mark you indelibly, let it spill something beautiful and unique onto you, the sum of which you carry forth throughout your life.
In this way you are both timely and timeless. The days and weeks and months and years do not shape you, but reveal you.
You are you, always.
