There's Beauty in the In-Between

There's beauty in the "in-between." That's how Fall makes me feel. We're at that time of year when it's cool enough at dawn and dusk to maybe require a sweater. We're at that time of year when it's still warm enough to drive around with the windows down and crank your new Maroon 5 CD (OK, maybe that's just me). The leaves on the trees are just barely starting to turn colors. It's starting to get darker earlier. New shows are starting on TV. It's like we've gotten on a carousel that hasn't quite reached its speed yet, and we're just slowly spinning, enjoying the ride. 

I was sitting outside at lunch yesterday, reading my book (Creative Confidence: Unleashing the Creative Potential Within Us All, by Tom and David Kelley, in case you were wondering) and enjoying the cool breeze and listening to the sounds of the day. It was peaceful and content. And I remember thinking to myself, this is beautiful. I don't get enough moments like that. I never just let myself be. 

There's beauty in the "in-between." This also describes my stage in life right now. I'm not yet who I want to become, but not really who I used to be anymore either. Just this transitional, changing, hopeful place. The autumnal equinox of my life, if you will. Oh my God, I'm the biggest nerd on the planet. That will never change. :) 

I'm a big ball of emotions, and hopes, and dreams these days. Raw, vulnerable, unsure. Tears, laughs, worries. 

I'm not really sure there is a point to this post, except to say that I think I'm finally at peace with changing my life. I don't have to have the answers right at this moment. But the one thing I do know for certain is this... 

There's beauty in the "in-between."
