I wouldn’t say that I’m feeling especially certain or confident these days.  I do feel certain that everything is going to be all right, if I can just be patient.  And this feeling of mine was echoed in a note from the Universe, who said it so charmingly that I wanted to share:

Have you noticed, how lacking clarity is clarity itself?
How, if you aren't sure about something, that alone has meaning?
Honor uncertainty. It's the seed from which
all-knowingness comes.
Give it time.
The Universe
I'm not sure, but I think you needed that.

Yes, as a matter of fact, I did need that! 

I found the Universe’s notepad via an old post of Chrissy’s, whose blog is always worth perusing.  I don’t know what’s going to happen next around here, but the Universe says knowing that I don’t know is something.  And even chaos, uncertainty, blurriness—these things can be beautiful because they shake you and wake you and make it possible for you to say things you didn’t know you needed to say and do things that perhaps you haven’t done because they weren’t “important” enough to do right away.

I’m embracing the chaos, even as I try to create some order around me.  Eventually, the path will become clearer, but for now, we are meandering together.

Blurry but Beautiful

I just caught up on posts from the last month. My goodness! I'm so sorry to hear of this sudden change in plans. Life sometimes takes us on roads we didn't intend to travel. I know this road will take you to wonderful new places eventually, even if it's bumpy for a while. I'm sending a big hug and an imaginary hot mug of chai!

Nicole! I'm sorry my response is so delayed here, but I wanted to say thank you for your sweet note. It may sound cheesy, but yes, I totally believe you that something wonderful and mysterious is in the works now. I have faith that things will work out.

I miss you, friend! I hope you are staying warm and cozy in Boston.
