I’ve come to realize that life has a lot of in between moments. Messy moments where you question where you are or how you’ll get to the place you’re yearning to be. Moments that tend to send us in a spiral of negative thoughts and emotions. Moments that make us think we’ll finally be happy with our lives once we reach that specific level of success, land that job, move to that city, or find love with that person. But those are just landing points. Beginnings and ends to chapters, that in reality, have a whole lot of stuff in between.
So what about those in betweens? What about that section of that chapter that holds the mess, the tears, the laughter, the mistakes, the process, the doubts, the revelations, the discoveries?
Let's sit in those in between moments a little longer. Let's surrender to the process, and practice cherishing what's present, even if it's hard. Accepting my path and living in peace with where I am, has lifted a weight off my shoulders, allowing me to enjoy the struggle. I no longer cherish just the final product or place. I cherish everything in between. The conversations that can’t be replicated, the memories undocumented, waking up in the morning knowing the phase I'm in now has potential for opportunity, excitement, and self discovery, the laughter that comes from letting go and making mistakes, the tears that come from uncertainty and hustle. Getting lost along the way can lead to beautiful moments, and being present in the between means we're living our truth. Take the in betweens and hold them a little closer.
