I don’t have much to say today. I’m still doing the same things. I’m still working the same jobs. I’m still pondering the same questions. Same. Same.

And even though I like change, relish it even, it feels okay to sit and wait in this sameness. Things are coming, good things. I’m just not sure how to move toward them, so I’m left to sit and wait for them to reach me or for me to have a direction on how to reach them. I don’t always like this sameness or this waiting, but I’m learning that there is much to see from this same spot. Life, in some senses, is moving around me while I stand still, so I keep watching to see how these moments work. I’m usually the one on the move, so on some level, I know I’m to learn something from this sameness. Just what that is . . . well, that probably won’t become clear until later, but I am sure there is something.

I’m cultivating a spirit of waiting. I’m not good at it, but I’m trying. How about you? Where is life for you right now? In flux? Stagnant? Hopeful? Discouraging?
