A Foggy Morning’s Mindful Reflection
As the morning sun climbs higher in the sky, and the settled fog that spilled over from The Ohio River becomes visible, I’m reminded of moments and seasons of uncertainty, and the ways I’ve reached for things to be either black or white, all or nothing.
In this foggy space, we often anxiously anticipate a clearing and miss the opportunity to spend time with the fog, getting to know its properties, allowing it to teach us valuable lessons like how to live peacefully in the grey.
→ Today’s mindful affirmation: I will create space and curiosity for the fog before it lifts again.
“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.” – Gilda Radner
