Before all these changes came into my life - I could predict things. I knew who my friends were, I knew who we would hang out with on the weekends, I knew my kids's worlds (ie. friends, teacher, activities), I knew where to shop, I knew what I was interested in, I knew where we were going and what to expect.
I don't know that anymore. So I have been settling that fact quietly in my head, trying to rest in the knowledge of change.
I found this quote:
"It's not so much that we're afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it's that place in between that we fear . . . . It's like being between trapezes. It's Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. There's nothing to hold on to."
- Marilyn Ferguson -
Its so true - I have nothing to hold on to. I feel like I am falling - or is it that I am floating or even flying?
I have discovered its how I look at it. If I look at it negatively then I am falling, but if I look at it with a different attitude - then I am floating or dare I say it - FLYING!
Did you know that bumblebees should scientifically not be able to fly? But they BELIEVE they can fly - so they do!
That is how I am going to look at this time of change - I AM FLYING!
