Thanks for popping out to the middle today! I’m so glad you’re here. I thought I’d share this beautiful field with you today that instantly had made me think of the movie, Field of Dreams. Have you seen it? If you haven’t or it’s been a while, maybe plan for a throwback this week for your movie night.
Living out here in the middle (of nowhere) can sometimes feel as though I am standing in the middle of a field of dreams while other times not. Do you ever find yourself just wanting to know what is in store for you next or wishing you could read the end of the book to know how everything will turn out first?
While sometimes I anxiously await and wonder “what’s next, ” I do find I am more and more content with not knowing what lies ahead. I find myself filled with gratitude, joy, and thankfulness for the path in which my family and I have been traveling. A path that has provided both firm footing as well as more difficult terrain that has slowed my step, widened my gaze, and developed a grit that wasn’t present before. Have you been in a place like that before? Does the ground feel solid or a bit rocky for you?
Standing in the middle of where I once was and where I was headed to is where I have both lost and found myself time and time again. The teetering between the two has opened my heart and my mind to reflection and where the breadcrumbs can be traced to what led me to where I am today. Sometimes realizing the harder route had to be taken. After all, it does take a lot of energy and time for growth to occur, no different than the flowers that dot the field in the photo above.
While the middle is not always the most comfortable place to linger in, it can sometimes create the most memorable pivot in life. The pivot that had to happen for everything else to fall in place and lead you through that field of dreams.
Thank you for stopping in today!
