I’m having a moment. A moment where things aren’t hugely exciting. A moment where the future seems lonely. A moment where I’m unsure if I’m on the right track. A moment where I’m questioning what “yes” really means.
I wasn’t sure if I should tell you that. About my moment. But this journey is about openness, honesty, and genuine me. So here it is. This moment is not unfamiliar, nothing dramatic, nothing to ring the alarms about. I’ve been through it before. It’s just that. A moment.
Sure, I can blame it on the acute rises and falls of this past year. The schedule that doesn’t seem to slow down. The fear that still lies within. The uncertainties that surround me. No doubt this moment is a result of all that and some. It happens.
Ok, don’t roll your eyes at me for saying this but…I’m thankful for this moment. I’m thankful because I sense it, I feel it, and I’m acknowledging it. I’m thankful because I know it’s there. I’m airing it out. Letting it breathe. And I’m allowing myself to experience it so it will pass, as uncomfortable as that can be. I’m thankful because all this means that something good is ahead. I’m also thankful because, for me, this is a new way [to approach moments].
Generally, challenges and uneasy feelings aren’t things anyone wants to deal with, let alone appreciate. Yet, they are often the things that can help shift our direction, fine-tune our thoughts, and invite change. They shine a light on all that is bright. You can’t have a rainbow without the rain, right?
So yeah, the moment will pass, the sweetness will come.
It’s just a moment.
