Empty. Void. Searching. They say if you give someone enough rope, they’ll hang themselves. I don’t want to believe that’s true. Give someone enough rope to appreciate their freedom. I choose to view the open space, the searching, the emptiness as an authentic journey you have to take [alone] so that, one day, you find what it is that you’re supposed to be filled with.
Sitting in the emptiness is hard work. The easy out is to fill it with inauthenticity. We are always after the quick fix and never understand the purpose of the second trimester. There are exciting times, and there are times to push, but in the second trimester we are to nurture, and WAIT. Not all changes can happen over night, so learn to accept the barrenness. Understand the temporary void and resist the urge to fill it with an artificial façade.
