The In-Between TimePosted: January 26, 2011 | |
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 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.
