Through the looking glass


I generally have a good handle on my emotions but circumstances of late have made that handle much more difficult to grasp.  I feel like I have boarded a train that has sped into a murky tunnel and I have no idea what awaits me on the other side.  Perhaps that is the most difficult part for me since I usually have a well thought out plan and I feel, now, like I am slightly clueless.

Alice had the benefit of being able to see beyond the glass into the world she was able to observe.  Her situation gave her the advantage of knowing what awaited her on the other side and any foresight into a situation is welcomed knowledge.

It is difficult, having moved forward into that mirror, feeling gravity pulling me in the rest of the way and, blindly assuming that the other side will be as beautiful as it is in my dreams.

I can only continue through that looking glass and hope that my intuition and my gut are leading me the right way and that the fate I am wishing for awaits me on the other side.

  1. I’ve noticed that you’ve been making cryptic references to what may lay ahead for you. I’m facing a big time of change too; it only started last week. Even though I have a plan, I don’t yet have coherent thoughts for what the upheaval will mean. It will be good, but hectic times coming!

      • Ah, yes agreed. The Not Knowing is harder to deal with because it interferes with trying to make plans, or even come to terms with it.

  2. I think you’ll like what you find on the other side. You’ll be there, so that alone is a good start. You draw good people to you, too. So, yeah, you are going to be fine.

  3. “and hope that my intuition and my gut are leading me the right way”—Oh yes, that is always the question, isn’t it? I’ve always let my brain lead the way, and it makes me wonder what I’ve missed out on. But I’ve become much better at listening to my gut in the last few years.

  4. I always hated not knowing until I came to accept it out of having no choice and I try to hold on to the thought that what I don’t know might, in fact, end up being fabulous.
