Out Here …

When you learn to stand still, to take a breath and then another,

When you remain quiet enough to pause in the question,

When you wait in uncertainty with no answer in sight,

When you are willing to ask for help and show vulnerability,

When you honor what you knew all along without knowing,

As well as what you didn’t know when you didn’t know it,

When you linger in recognition of all you are learning now,

When you reach forward in gratitude and become witness to all you have, instead of focusing backwards on things you may have lost,

Or on things you were sure you were supposed to get but never did,

then and only then will you be able to fully appreciate the journey…”
