Manoeuvring my Madness into Words

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.” ~ Rumi

I seem to be stuck in limbo.  I’m not my usual bubbly, care-free happy self and yet I am not deeply sad or depressed, I just seem to be stuck, somewhere in the middle ~ in limbo.

I have so many exciting things lined up that I should really be doing cartwheels across the floor but that’s just not happening for some reason. Maybe it’s the calm before the crazy explosions of amaziness that is coming!  Whatever it is, I do hope these moments of limbo pass soon. I miss me.

A few little things niggling me.

I remind myself “It’s Temporary”.

I remind myself life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful.

I am painfully aware of how painful it can be to be fully aware.

I believe in destiny so much so that I wrap myself in the comfort of letting go.

I remind myself that I am not crazy to be feeling or thinking everything that I am.

If being crazy means living life as if it matters, then I don’t mind being completely insane.

“After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels.” ~ Ann Richards

Nothing ventured. Nothing gained.

I get up.

I walk.

I fall down.

Meanwhile, I keep dancing.

    Do you fully realise that you have pushed yourself to your absolute limits? You have reached your high and in doing so have achieved and overcome the hardest thing you have had to do thus far. I think that in some way the body misses that sense of ‘pushing’, ‘overcoming’ and ‘taking the next step’.

    I think your feelings now make perfect sense. You are in the ‘in between’ stage. The part that comes before the next great adventure. The training starts all over and so does the planning and the build up.

    No matter how frustrating this may be – you need this time. Your body, mind and soul need to rest and rejuvenate. Take it for what it is… a time to breathe…

    This is called a slow dance <>
