always will be

July 14, 2015

Today as the New Horizons space probe buzzes pass the once-planet, Pluto, I'm reminded of a conversation with my daughter just a few months ago. I met my daughter at the corner of our street, talking about her day she says, "...you know, back before Pluto wasn't a planet..." as the conversation continued I couldn't help but think Pluto will always be a planet to me.

 

There's even a term for it now: to be "plutoed" - devalued, demoted or diminished in some way.

 

It also made me think, how can you unlearn something?

 

Then again, how can we rewrite our own script. Is it possible? Will you always be the person someone remembers you to be. Good or bad. Or is it possible to rewrite your reputation. Because everyday has new challenges and opportunities to alter your story. What others perceive you to be is their own business. Just be you and then a bit better, each day. Small changes made daily is the answer.

 

Dear Pluto,
You'll always be a planet to me. But now, you are even more... a boundary that has been explored and seen.
