Dragonflies symbolize transition. Friday when I went noodle bobbing, dragonflies circled us in the pool. Dragonflies appear to me regularly. I get it.
Yes, this is definitely a time of transition. Understanding that message, however, doesn't make clear the way forward. At the moment, I take the next step as it comes...as I am able.
For 25 years, I have been a psychotherapist. In that profession, one learns to keep oneself to oneself. Sessions are about the client. That's the way it needs to be.
Here I feel stuck as a writer. Spending the last quarter century not revealing myself, I now struggle with the practice of showing up and telling it like it is for me.
I don't know what that will look like. I just know it will be different. That's how it is when coming through a dark night...too dark to see where the next step takes me, but knowing that I have to put my foot down somewhere.
So that's what I'm going to do.
