Knowing when to hold on and when to let go is a fine art... in love, in work, in life. Neither is easy. This has been a huge transition time for me, a year of growing. But it has also been a time of contemplation... of quiet... as if I am choosing to hang out on the sidelines until I am ready. For what... I'm still not sure. For me, life is truly fulfilling when it is packed with adventure and travel, laughter and friends and family, challenges that push me out of my comfort zone. In other words, I am not okay with sitting on the sidelines for long. But I have felt "in-between" for quite some time, and I've tried not to be too hard on myself, instead attempting to be patient and giving myself time to figure out whatever it is I need to figure out. I've had to let go of friendships, of love, and ultimately, what I am. But through this process, I am surfacing. Holding on to my truth and letting go of fear will allow me to become what I might be. And this is incredibly exciting... the calm before the storm.
