The time in between what you were but are no longer, and what you are becoming, but are not yet. A place to pause, get quiet and listen to your own secrets. This is the liminal time, the dark moon.
Instead of running away, can you relax here? Release your grip on what was and open your hands to receive what is to come. Stop beating yourself up for what you've deemed uncomfortable or undesirable. Welcome the dark parts, the shadowy places, kiss your self-proclaimed unattractive bits. Find the beauty in your vulnerability. After all my darlings, this is where our treasure lies. It is the acknowledgement of our entire experience that makes us human.
