The Unread Map

For the first time since all of this life upheaval started, I felt today a glimmer of excitement about the fact that I don’t know what comes next. The map of my past is filled in, explored as thoroughly as I care to, and spreads out behind the X labeled “You are here.” Until now the lack of terrain features on the map ahead of me was creating anxiety and fear, not interest or excitement. But I am finally in a place where the lack of certainty is exciting and not frightening. I have hopes for what lies ahead, certainly, and I have things I am capable of actualizing to give me some sense of obstacles to come, but the actual landscape? Unknown. Unpredictable. And, at long last, Undaunting.

  1. Hope there are good prospects for gold in them thar hills – you sound more chipper than you did just a while back, and I’m glad to hear that.

    I wish you an adventure ahead that doesn’t hurt, and people to share it with.

    • Thank you! Can’t imagine a better blessing to take with me into the unknown 🙂

      And I am definitely feeling better than I was a couple months ago. Limbo has been useful for time and space to do some healing, if nothing else
