Unknown territory

To feel “normal” we must feel like we belong to something larger than ourselves. An idea, a home, a place, a tribe, a people…something to connect us with the past and the future.

We want to be part of the journey.

We also want that space to feel safe in our same shared experiences. And so, we look to others to see, “Is this right?”

That reassurance can feel good especially when we are in unknown territory. But it also could mean when we are stepping into the void, we are on the edge of something great and daring.

That isn’t anything that we call “normal.” That is extraordinary. Most of us don’t have the guts to be on the edge of something that might not work. In this zone, there is no one to look to except yourself.

Trust thyself.
