“Because there is that sort of feeling that people don’t know what to do with gaps in their lives. It’s a scary notion, but actually, if you can stand in space just for a little while, a new door will open, or you’ll be able to see in the dark after a while. You’ll adjust.” ~Jane Cam
Have you ever been the grout between the tiles, the one thing holding others together?
Do you have a companion who is the voice of reason when you need it most?
Ever had a friend who makes you want to be a better person, one who exemplifies goodness and all that is right with the world?
Sometimes I feel as if there is a space within myself like I am lost in this world or even in my own thoughts. It is different than housing a void. While I can’t pinpoint a problem I simply know I’m off my game, kind of like the lethargy and fuzziness I feel right before I’m consumed with illness. Then someone performs a kind gesture or offers words of inspiration or affirmation, and voila I’m back to reality. Perhaps it’s a matter of perspective.
Other times there is a space between you and me. While I’m lost in my world maybe you’re busy with your life. Chances are our worlds no longer intersect. Or is it because we’ve grown apart and no longer care enough to fill the gaps?
The problem is I am accustomed to and comfortable with my own gaps…at least, most of the time. I am a truth-seeker and often take myself way too seriously. I appreciate the people who save me from myself and lighten my load with laughter.
I tend to forget how easy it is to fill the gaps by simply being humble. One must be as able to receive as graciously as they give. The most important offerings are free…love and compassion.
