"Why not go out on a limb? Isn't that where the fruit is?"
~ Frank Scully ~
When we are waiting to find out if something is going to play out or not, it's exciting... because it could play out. There's hope in the waiting. And especially if it's a long shot, it would be so affirming and thrilling if it did!
Once we know for sure one way or another, the feeling is entirely different. It's adjusting our mindset to absorb the disappointment or rallying our nerves to move forward. But when it's pure possibility and could go either way- ah! That is its own kind of beautiful time.
I enjoy the space of not knowing and delight in the fact that anything could happen.
