Sitting Still and Moving Forward
Today, for the first time ever, I sat with a group of women. Actually just sat.
Silently. For 30 minutes.
And while my mind was certainly not void of thought, there were moments that were perfectly clear. No worries about rejection letters, no planning out the day, no thoughts of other people’s needs. (Of course these thoughts like to creep in, but they don’t have to linger)
A group of women just sitting in a circle. All eyes closed. Holding the silence. What could happen in that nothing-ness? Life. Holding me still, yet pushing me ahead, all at once.
Sitting and moving together.
