I am a sold outer. A person who only knows how to be in with both feet. Once I see, know and taste where I am to be or what I am to be doing, there I am. All of me. Whole heartedly.
It doesn’t leave much room for in-between. For the place of unknown.
Matter of fact I am the most unpleasant in that place. In the in-between. It rattles my bones and shakes my soul because it calls me to be patient….to wait. Waiting is hard. Waiting requires maturity and understanding. I want to do….go….conquer…..live….enjoy…be all in.
But life calls for the in-between. Children call for the in-between…they are always in-between. In-between baby and toddler. Toddler and child. Child and little kid. Little kid and tween. Tween and teenager. Teenage and young adult. Young adult and Adult. Without the in-between we miss the opportunity to grow. To see change. To stretch ourselves.
So this whole hearted sold outer has learned to embrace the in-between. I am learning patience and maturity. I am learning how to whole heartedly embrace the in-between. How to jump in with both feet into the unknown of the in-between.
