There have been times in my life when I was wrought with fear because I truly didn’t know the answer.

What was right; the truth!
Maybe it was a relationship where I wasn’t sure. I became weary of people saying “you’ll just know.” I used to think “maybe You just knew. Maybe I just won’t! I’m different. I don’t have the same life as you.”

Maybe it was when someone you loved was in trouble and you wanted to help them but you could not figure out if your help was actually hurting them instead of helping. A lot of times it’s easy to decipher the ‘right’ thing to do. And we may not actually choose the right thing…but at least we know what it is.

It’s the times where you really can’t figure out what is right. What is the next step? What do I do? What I thought I was going to do no longer feels right and I’m…lost. If we can get to a point where we admit we’re lost and need help…that’s huge.

I can let go of the grip
And fall back
Someone will catch me.
If I believe that, that’s trust.

It’s when I’m caught that I need to be grateful (grateful for being caught), brush myself off and do the work needed to get to the next step. What is the next step? Maybe this process repeats itself a few times. But each time, you end up learning something right; the right thing to do.

Until ultimately…
You know what is right. The way will be lit with lanterns.
