“You are in this time of the interim where everything seems withheld. The path you took to get here has washed out; the way forward is still concealed from you. You cannot lay claim to anything; In this place of dusk, your eyes are blurred; And there is no mirror.” — John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us
Waiting. So much of our lives are filled with it but no one really ever teaches us how to do it. How do we know when we need to wait? How do we know when it’s time to move? There’s several kinds of waiting, today I’ll share four: The kind we talk about, the kind we don’t talk about, the kind that sneaks up on you, and the kind that needs to stop. Listen in.
