quote du jour ~lesser – so what to do…?

So, what to do with the hurt? With the anxiety? With the not-knowing? I’ve spent my life plumbing this conundrum. The best answer I have come up with is to flail around until I get bored with the anxiety itself, tired of fighting the river’s ebbs and flow. Eventually I lay back on the dark waters. I float in what we call faith, but that word is too flimsy–it has has too few letters and not enough heft and hope to adequately describe what it means to trust beyond knowing, to accept beyond imagining. Faith is something glorious, something leaping, something even delicious.

    • I was in the flailing stage just days ago. In fact, the last few months have seen me swinging back and forth between flailing and floating at dizzying speeds! Sending good thoughts your way that you will find your way back to the believing/floating place. Viki
