Someone recently said to me, “Kate, this all sounds like you are carving out your own life”. She meant that although I feel like I’m grasping at things, or trying and not succeeding at others, or just perplexed by some aspect of my world, that I’m right where I’m supposed to be.
Some days, sure its hard to agree with that statement. We can be too short term minded, forgetting that we are laying the brickwork for what is coming. But today, I like this sentiment. Does it matter that I fail- no only that I learn from it. Does it matter that I can’t figure out a burning question- no only that I allow myself to live, and hence live into the answer? Does it matter that I’m trying so hard and not yet ‘there’- no, as long as I don’t give up.
Hmmm… right in the thick of it, is where I’m supposed to be.
