Hello and welcome to another week. All present and correct? In body at least?
Well, we’re sure you too may have noticed that somehow, life manages to continuously throw up the unexpected. Sometimes daily, sometimes hourly … Recently too for us here at Handsome and Pretty as individuals. The looming uncertainties, the awareness that change is a-coming but not knowing what it might be, and, more importantly, if we will manage / rise to the occasion. And although it can be seen as an ‘exciting’ time – the period of transition and possibility – it is a time too when fears can quite easily become bigger than we’d like them. It can be an ongoing mission just to manage the feeling of uncertainty and keep on moving forward, even though mostly you are unsure as to where your next step may fall. Know the feeling?
Well here is a wonderful quote from Rilke which seems to speak right into the heart of the matter:
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions”
we hope it speaks to you too
