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