Limbo lies heavily on my shoulders. While some can see it as the pause before change, I find myself dancing awkwardly, offbeat and caught up in waiting. When asked, "What is your biggest challenge?", well, I know that my response is relative and a shape-shifter depending on where one is at in a certain point in life. But for right now, if I am being honest, I would have to answer, "Trusting." So much has been up in the air these past few months, so many glittering balls suspended, yet to tumble down. They will. And I am definitely aware that uncertainty is a part of many of our daily lives. Best then to try and make peace with this parenthesis. When I am present enough, I can decide to root myself in searching for beauty, my balm...
Day in, day out.
Ben reminds me to keep it simple.
Remi reassures me with a quick kiss in passing.
My Sister reminds me to take good care of myself and I know that there is strength to be found in helping others.

And when in limbo, what better a time to ask yourself the important questions.
"Do you have Love for Humankind?" I do and in that I trust. The rest will work itself out.
