Living in liminal space

The last few months we have been living in a unknown world. I feel so out of control with what to do next? Where do we take our family?  How do we live off the little money we get from EI? Do we sell the house? Do I quit my company to get a more steady job?.  This is a lot to think of, a lot to worry about. This season has most defiantly put a strain on our relationship and finances. With my hubby home with us it had been so nice to parent together and enjoy our kids.

I was listening to my favorite podcast the other day and it was on seasons and how to navigate though them. We feel overwhelmed and stuck waiting for a job to call us back. We are in a strange place that I could not think of a good word for. Then Rob Bell said that this space is liminal space.

“Participants "stand at the threshold" between their previous way of structuring their identity, time, or community, and a new way. Continuity of tradition may become uncertain, and future outcomes once taken for granted may be thrown into doubt. - Wikipedia 

This is 100% how my husband and I feel. We are at the threshold of old and new.  We still don't know what and where we will go and that is ok. We have some changes coming that will be good for us. I hope to share them here with my peeps.

Embrace the liminal space and don't stress and hurry to a space that may not be where you need to go. In this space breath, find peace you will figure it out and the universe will guide your heart to a new way of life you just need to be patient.

Till next time my friends
