Isn't that pretty much the whole issue most of the time, the timing?
I was in a funny place for a while, trying to figure out why I felt lost, so I just did what my father told me to do if (when!) I got lost in the woods. He told me to resist the urge to wander around, but just stay where I was until either I figured out for sure which way to go or someone found me. That long ago advice was right for this SP journey, too, because both things happened, and I'm not feeling lost anymore. The path was right there all along.
Timing. Maybe the biggest question is what's right for this moment. Sometimes it's time to just keep walking. Sometimes it's time to reassess before we keep walking. Sometimes it's time to recognize what's right instead of what's wrong. Sometimes it's time to pare tasks down to the simple things. And sometimes it's time to jump up and down, hug the people who came, pat ourselves on the back for hanging tough, and be grateful for being alive and changing. So I'm not in a funny place anymore. I'm here, right where I need to be.
Thank you Friends for being there, for not judging me, for helping me find myself, for giving me the space to reflect until the timing was right. We truly are all in this together.
