Last week I had a clear idea about what to write. This week, not the case.
Last week I wrote about untying a knot and how sometimes the knot gets knottier before it gets unknotted and the clears up.
This week I am in the unclear part. The part where all the threads are tangled and starting to loosen but the end result is not yet in sight. I have no insight.
If I were my own best friend I would sit by my side. I would sit there knowing sometimes you have to be in the tangled mess. Sometimes you have to choose to sit in there and figure out which threads are the most important. The end result is not in sight yet… However the insight comes from pulling on the threads. Feeling your way through the mess. Knowing it will straighten out eventually. And on the other side there will be something knew.
If I were my own best friend I would sit by my side offering companionship but not guidance. Because sometimes the untangling has to come from within for that is where the true learning and growth lie. Not from being guided to the learning but from doing the hard work myself. Doing the hard work with gratitude for what is, joy for the work at hand, and curiosity about what will come.
Now it’s time to get back to untangling knots.
I really enjoyed this post.
