My daughter in the car yesterday – “I’m about 95% sure I’m bisexual,” she said.
“Yeah?” I was surprised. She’s mentioned this for nearly a year but never so committed. “Is that what you think?”
She laid out her evidence and it was compelling.
“There are still some pieces of the puzzle missing,” she said. “Just a couple pieces or the one piece that goes in the middle that will finish it but I can see what the picture is going to be.”
“Nothing. It’s okay if you’re bisexual, you know that. I want you to live your life the same way I live mine. You just live, honey. That’s all you need to do. I’m staring at you because I just can’t believe how well you express yourself. You’re 12, you know. That’s a pretty comprehensive understanding of how life works and I am shocked.
And today using her model… well I can see the puzzle of my life forming too. But I am nowhere near as trusting and / or accepting as my daughter is and I blame my Capricorn.
If you have a lot of Capricorn you have to plan for the sky to fall or you head to come off your shoulders and roll down the hill at pretty much any moment. But I think I could take a lesson from my daughter here.
To her, 95% of the pieces in place translates 95%, done deal.
In contrast, 95% of the places in piece in my life translates to 3-4% done deal. Is that terrible? Gah.
If I TRY, I can get the percentage up to about 20 or 25… but that’s it!
What about you? If you can see the picture 95% formed, do you trust the other pieces to fall in place? How much Capricorn you packin’?
