“You don’t know what you want!” she hurled at me
The intensity of her rage hit me and shame swept over me as my body filled with the heat of defensiveness
Years ago I would have crumbled
Or started over-compensating with many many words
But then I heard loud and clear “so what”
Really “so what”
We live in such a goal driven culture
And so undervalue not knowing
I know this so well
But I also know that if it wasn’t for feeling so lost for so many years – I don’t think I ever would have found this version of myself
Reminds me of the quote “not all who wander are lost”
We tend to celebrate the knowers – we are pedestal and guru makers
I know I am…
I have spent much of my time searching for answers and become easily seduced by those with quicker words and sharper insights…
And still I often don’t know what I want
And that – that is completely ok
