Living in the time in between

I am envious of those who, unlike me, can stay productive and positive in such uncertain times. I missed a blog post last week because I’ve been struggling.

Psychologists call what many of us are experiencing grief. I’d add uncertainty and emptiness. That feeling you have when you are in between jobs, careers, houses, partners, life stages, when things are not going as you hoped or planned – it is that but multiplied to Nth degree. The feeling of being lost, stuck, a mix of dread and agitation, anxiety over uncertainty and growing impatience. Anxiety and excitement rolled into one…

How to not freak out and overdo it and instead practice patience and non-doing, while letting your life unfold? “Infinite patience produces immediate results.” Below are the words of encouragement from Lissa Rankin which I stumbled into in her book “The anatomy of a calling”. Keep going, don’t give up, you can do it – it is on its way.
