In this state: comfort.
Is the epitome of bliss—
where I unwind, unfetter from futile worries, stop rationalizing and instead…
roam, am aware and blazingly taking this step
Albeit- no stone’s been set.
Growth and Consolidation.
This journey is my life, this journey is my task. Finding balance.
There have been months of consolidation and months of growth-
Imbalance is unharmonious, not in synch- which I want to be. With myself, the environment and this journey. I had to reflect to learn, learn to know and know to grow. It is a cycle, we inhabit- of life. Doubt overcame me: regarding my Self, my outer shell and task.
Until I finally found both! Where I could consolidate, while growing and grow while consolidating.
Doubt comes, but it also goes fast. Ultimately, I chiseled on a foundation until it was steadfast. A foundation to remain on and stand steadily- may the winds blow and the waves crash.
This became my point of consolidation, from which I would explore, grow and wander. My place of confidence, trust and belief.
Since then, I have chiseled on many along this journey- there is no going back, no stagnating. It needs to suit my needs, my growth, my Self of that given time. It supports my step and allows me to…
Step on shaking grounds that are on the verge of erupting, making for a fertile soil. Or, even where no stone has been set and just risking this step.
It is nerve-wrecking, challenging and beyond anything the mind can rationally grasp. It tickles something inside that I have yet to uncover, but can feel. So I am- and always grow on erupting grounds and consolidate on my current chiseled foundation. I am my rock.
Anything is possible, with comfort- in heart and mind.
A gamble of chance. A certainty of destiny. A journey of love.
