3/17 – Half way

Half way.

I certainly needed to hear that today (yesterday).

If only I was half way to finishing other things.

Like worrying.

And wishing things were different than they are.

And wanting time to go faster.

Or slower.

And thinking any state of affairs can last forever.

It’s more likely these lessons may take me lifetimes.


But in the meantime, there are friends.

And the best ones have this hanging up to remind you:

Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.” – Albus Dumbledore

I needed to hear that, too.

    I thought of the Proverbs, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (18:21). I related to your: “If only I was half way to finishing other things.”


  2. I love how you channel the magic of pace and reflection with this piece. Such good reminders. I wonder what I’m half-way to right now… so many things, I imagine.

    There’s such wisdom in your post. If only…
    I tend to worry and fret about so much and often do it far in advance of the object of my worry.


  4. Love everything about this. Love all the half wishes, love the HP quote, love the honesty. Worry is deep with me this week. Hoping to shed it soon. Hope you do too.

    The worry is woven into your words. I hope, in the writing, they were alleviated at least a tiny bit. Yes, we’ve made it halfway through the challenge! As Glennon Doyle says, “We can do hard things.”


  6. Oh my I love that quote! I want to hang it up in my office next year.

    I don’t think we will ever be finished worrying, but don’t wish time to go faster. Savor the minutes. When you are in what you know is the second half of your life, you want it to slow down for sure.

    I know how that feeling wanting time to go faster or slower. Life can be hard at times. I’m thankful you have friends to support you.
