The Waiting Room & Spring Style Picks
“We hope that one day we’ll wake up and the fog will lift, but the reality is that we have to learn how to generate our own light.” – Gala Darling
My mind is playing tricks on me again. Leading me down logical missteps while my heart’s yearnings scrap it on the outskirts. Never before have I felt more anxious (but sure) about what’s coming next. About the soon to be freedom that will enable me to get back on desired track. I’m in the waiting room (the one Dr. Seuss addresses in Oh The Places You’ll Go, the one that’s not for you or me). I’m trying to sit tight and analyze the others who are here with me by choice. The ones who prefer not to break free, but instead endure the miserable stagnancy. I’m trying to appreciate my brief encounter with them while it lasts, because I know I’ll never be coming back again.
I’ve tried to occupy myself, calm myself down with distractions like yoga, sketching, knitting, cooking even. While I’m happy to indulge in creativities, they are mere temporary solutions to the increasing restlessness I can’t seem to shake.
When you’ve made up your mind about something, and the direction you want to take it, how do you endure the waiting game (the one you can’t escape, despite making progress towards what you want)? I’m struggling with my patience!
Jay Kay has been my positive groove mentor (how romantic and calming are his lyrics?)…
“When I met you, you were so unique
Had a little thing I’d love to keep
Every movement carried so much mystique
I knew right then I’d carry on, to you I knew my heart belonged
You, you give me something
Something that nobody else can give
See my heart, has started thumpin’
You’re the one I truly know I dig
Like the sunbeams from a perfect summer’s day
Heaven only seems a step away
When I’m with you, I just celebrate
I’m hoping my message gets through
There’s never been someone like you
I had nobody, on you I would lean
Cos you got these little things that
I know I’ve never seen.”
