“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” Joseph Campbell

The Moment Has Not Arrived

Have you thought about the pivot, 
that moment you told yourself that
the future would recommence at  a
convenient self-determined time
suitable to moi, yet somehow,
involving the globe in a massive 
transaction of giving to just your
simple agenda of returning to 
something familiar. The moment 
has not arrived, and here we are,
waiting, poised, exhausted, not
knowing, and yet we are alive
even as we pivot, hoping, waiting,
for how it was.

  5. Your words describe the state of our world right now. I feel this is the time to get curious, let go and discover. We don’t know because the moment has not yet arrived.

  7. I want the world to be as it was, but it won’t be. Hopefully, the coming change will be an evolution, not a pivot.
