sometimes i write in lowercase because it feels like i have nothing epic or loud or brave to say. especially these days, which have me circling in a weird holding pattern over several life markers i had pinned a different (sooner!) ETA to.
so i drank one too many tea(r)cups of self-pity yesterday and started bemoaning the loss of my momentum and control. it wasn’t my plan to fly so low or to circle so slowly around these airports. actually, it wasn’t my plan to do anything but arrive and achieve and accomplish and succeed. BADA BING! BADA BOOM! BAM! BOOYA! etcetera.
i always roll my eyes at the “it’s all about the journey” quote that people toss you like a patronizing bone to gnaw on while you’re waiting.
but the thing is…
…it’s all about the journey.
with each slow swoop around, i’m a little less obsessed about arriving and a little more okay with just becoming for now.
and you know what? that’s worth a booya! too.
You are just too much fun!
gives me chills. i FEEL so different lately – we are evolving, and it thrills my soul when i read from other people that they are feeling it too… no labels, just FEELING IT. :) and i LOVE that photo – do you see the ring in it?!?! so cool.
i have found that living in the lower case is just part of the deal. we circle and then WE SOAR.
The secret is to see the circling as a necessary process preparing for the soaring. Then the season of circling is experienced as a normal process, not for despairing, but of being at one with humankind, which also waits patiently for the grace-filled treasure moments. The circling time far exceeds the soaring, to be sure, but both are gifts, part of the priceless wonder of being alive. BOOYA!
this was precisely what i needed to read today. thank you :-)
