The Space Between No Longer and Not Yet
You know that awkward space that comes between one lesson you’ve already passed and the next you’re still trying to learn from? It feels like a moment when you know you’re ready, but you just haven’t had the opportunity to prove it. I am just realizing that this space is one of the best places to be -- let me tell you why. In that space of not yet and almost is the time where you build character. It is easy to be content with who you are while everything is going good, but it is not until you are uncomfortable and restless that you really learn the lessons around you. You may be wondering why that is, but let’s be real with ourselves, it is because you have no choice. If you decide that lessons aren’t worth learning in the moment, you won’t have the tools you need for the next, and who wants to go anywhere without being prepared. So I say take notes, ask questions, reflect, and honor the space between no longer and not yet.
