The In-Between Time

From the book The Language of Letting Go, by Melody Beattie:

“Sometimes, to get from where we are to where we are going, we have to be willing to be in-between”

I see, clearly, that what I have been struggling with internally, for some time now, is this place called In Between. 

I don’t generally do well with In Between, because I feel like I need to always be “going SOMEWHERE”.  The grass over there is green, and my grass is covered in dog poop.  I know, it makes me sound ungrateful, but I’m not.  Just over-ambitious.

I don’t know why I doubt the universe when it tells me that I need to wait – to be patient.  (patience is NOT one of my virtues, which of course means I need to work on it all the fucking time!)  I mean, has the universe ever let me down? no.  Then, listen to Ms. Beattie’s words:

Today, I will accept where I am as the ideal place for me to be.  If I am in-between, I will strive for the faith that this place is not without purpose, that it is moving me toward something good.
