Uncertainty is a good thing

so claims Deepok Chopra who says uncertainty is where creativity and freedom meet. And since my August and September were filled with uncertainties of the most physically and emotionally draining kind, my October is looking to call on all my creative recourses to see myself through. Not sure about anything at the moment so I apologize for the lack of detail in this post. But it's hard to describe even how I'm feeling, which is an unusual thing to say for someone who experiences the world through feelings. In some ways it's the worst place to be, but I think I'll probably look back and realize this was where things finally changed for the better.

The hardest part is what to leave behind, ... It's time to let go!

  1. I am so happy to see that this time has had some joy, love and creativity. Letting go is the hard part but often when we do let go something new comes in. xoxo
    p.s. You have been in my thoughts. Take care of you!

  2. you are in my thoughts too. I am currently about to start a new job and quite possibly a new life where I move from my rented house early January next year to enable me to live closer to my workplace. I love where I live now and my friends and neighbours but it will cost a lot of money in the daily commute to work. I am thinking of it all as a new chapter in my life and I'm looking forward to gaining some new friends at the supermarket. And an income!!

  3. Letting go. A concept I struggle with all the time tho' I hear once you learn to let go, all things become easier. Take care of yourself. We are thinking good thoughts and sending them your way...

  4. Thanks everyone, your comments, I hate to admit, all brought tears to my eyes. It means so much to have this kind of support right now, thank you!!!

  5. I like this post. Sorry, I haven't been around. I need to start reading other people's blogs again! I've been behind on everything (including my own blog). I feel in much the same place as you seem to be. It's hard being at a crossroads and not having any idea what is coming next. I'm trying to be better about just riding the waves of change! Good luck to you.

  6. Hi Maya, no need to apologize, I seem to be going through the same thing. It is hard being at a crossroads, constant family pressures make it no easier, but I'm starting to see the bright side of things again. Good luck to you too!!!
