ever so often i find myself at a new intersection in life wondering which would be the best direction to turn. do i forge straight ahead? take a right? i've been banging on my internal compass for an answer but it simply isn't coming.
i've cleared my summer calendar of all travel so that i can be here to enjoy this last little bit of time before our lives change drastically. we are in escrow on a house. i am deciding on some new projects that may or may not change my schedule in a huge way. so much is up in the air right now. there is great beauty to be found in transition. so often i am rushing to the next answer and i'm trying to smile through uncomfortable, uncertain feelings and just wait. watch. and greet the new day with open arms.
and isn't it so interesting that the moments before you are about to give birth are called "in transition"? the sticky moments come before the enlightened ones.
a wise friend of mine said i should refer back to this. good thinking mama.
