Grey space…ugh, I hate it; a space filled with unknowns, uncertainty, confusion. I think it can be so scary! I am such a black and white type of thinker, guilty of being too logical sometimes. Everything has a reason and everything has an answer. Seems so simple to me. I have a hard time embracing the grey space, can you tell? Haha. I always have a plan, structure and a vision of what’s to come. Things should always be clear, right?! Well, let me tell you, they aren’t!
These last few months of my life I have been living in the grey space. I am experiencing a transitional phase in my life where I have no idea what’s to come – career, life, love, etc. The plan, the structure, the vision of where I thought I was going to be is so different from my reality today. What’s weird is that I thought this transitional phase was going to be so scary and I thought I would have a hard time keeping things positive, but guess what? I’m not scared. I’m not exactly sure how it happened [probably because I have amazingly supportive and loving people in my life] but I let go of being scared, I let go of thinking ahead, I let go of worrying and I was able to embrace the unknown. Don’t get me wrong, I have experienced moments of fear, anxiety, and even sadness. Change can be hard. Some days I wake up feeling like I can take on the world and some days I wake up feeling defeated. But the beauty of the grey space is you don’t know what can happen tomorrow. Everything that has come into my life during this time has taught me something, even the let downs. I’m learning things about myself and my life because I am trying to pay attention to the signs. Usually, when I think in black and white, I get tunnel vision and miss so much around me. I believe the grey space is ruled by the universe and if you can let go of the control you can learn to embrace uncertainty and fear.
I wanted to share this with you all because we all go through transitional phases in our lives. Some phases may be harder than others but being scared is not the answer. Embracing what life throws at you is a gift. Accept it. Love it. Pay attention to the signs and always know that everything happens for a reason, even the bad things. Even the hardest phases can turn into exciting phases. It’s all about perception. Keep your mind positive and your heart open and you can get through anything!!
In honour of the grey space, I layered up some of my favorite grey pieces 🙂
