What's striking to me is the contrast between these two states and how pronounced it is when I shift from one to the other. Night and day have more in common yet on the most interesting days I can shift back and forth multiple times within an hour.
It's driven home a simple fact, one I knew but never acted on: I have bridges to burn.
I relate to a lot of this. I've experienced an entire paradigm shift more or less overnight, and it's a relief to know I'm not alone in this.
