My mom often said “I can’t see my way clear” when she was struggling with making a big decision. So this phrase comes to mind whenever I feel like I am in a murky transition, trying to see the next stage in life. Rather than panic and rush to figure things out, I remind myself that it’s ok not to know what the end goal is. It will usually reveal itself as I muddle my way through.
I have been trusting this a lot lately, in my middle years as my roles at home and in society shift and change. I’m trying to embrace the beauty of uncertainty. And it’s what I was trying to reflect in this quilt design, so I’m calling it “Transition.”
