Ruminations... tough day.

 “We know what we are, but know not what we may be.”

-William Shakespeare


There are days for excitement, exhalation, and joy...and then there are days for reflection. For rest. For silence.

Today is one of those days- the latter: for quiet and for rumination. ...

I’m generally pretty good at expressing myself... or I like to think that I am. And I am good at the “big stuff”- the macro concepts. But then, when it comes to the daily trials, I get stuck. I think I’ve gotten so adept at “living in the moment” that I’ve forgotten how to devise and navigate the immediate future- or deal with bumps in the road when it comes to subsequent plans.

Today I’m dealing with some things- some bumps- so to speak. Some major bumps. And they’re things I probably should have dealt with a while ago- and things that I will be dealing with in the upcoming months...or longer.

I don’t necessarily feel the need to go into specifics right now - but what I will say is that I am slowly learning that a lot of the beauty is found in the unknown: not the complete unknown- but in facing the future with the knowledge of who we are, how we got ourselves here...our strengths, our weaknesses, our mistakes and our lessons - all the while, accepting that we may not know exactly what lies ahead.

As Shakespeare so aptly noted, “we know what we are.” I know what I am. I know how I became who I am. But “know not what we may be”...and there is beauty to be found in that mystery. ✨

So despite the bumps, the obstacles, the hard decisions and regardless of the difficulties- I am looking forward to discovering what the future will bring- and  to discover what version of myself awaits. 🙏🏻

Wishing everyone a weekend filled with discovery, truth and beauty.

Lots of love,
