Ironically, parenting is a shame and judgment minefield precisely because most of us are wading through uncertainty and self-doubt when it comes to raising our children. [Brene Brown]
I’m so often in doubt I wonder if I know what it is for me to BE sure of something. I see that when I am still and quiet here in the mornings of my days. I lose track of it when I am in the flow of living my Life.
I don’t know that we are made nor meant to BE so sure of anything, especially ourselves. I think this Life thing is all about wondering and BEing uncertain.
Doubt isn't the opposite of faith; it is an element of faith. [Paul Tillich]
If this is true, and I BElieve it is, then I have great faith. Far greater than I could have imagined. There is a place in me that sits comfortably on the very pokey fence that is on one side certain and the other in doubt. About everything.
I ask questions and then I listen and wait and try to deeply hear the answers that come. Always. They DO always come. Just NOT when or how I think they should.
And your doubt can become a good quality if you train it… [Rainer Maria Rilke]
I love you, Currie
