Liminal Space or is it Purgatory ?

I’ve heard the term “liminal space ” recently and it’s begun echoing in my head
Is that where I am?
Is that what “this” is?
And by “this” I mean my life
These days with no agenda or responsibilities
These days I’d have never thought could be pregnant with possibility
just with pottery class and Pilates

The google definition says…”Creativity and the Liminal Space. … The word “liminal” comes from the Latin word limens, which means, “threshold.” “… It is when you have left the tried and true, but have not yet been able to replace it with anything else. It is when you are between your old comfort zone and any possible new answer.”

My husband was raised catholic
He understands the concept of purgatory
I do not
I feel restless in this in between
I feel like everyday I’m going to find my next thing
My future
My passion and purpose are intertwined in part two
I just don’t know how to find them
The pursuit is real

So the phrase, liminal space, resonates
Loudly
It’s a label
It’s an answer to the inevitable question of…
“What do you do?”
Which I used to love
Now I loathe

Liminal Space is a thing
It’s a place I can claim
My flag can fly here and it can be any color I choose
It sounds like an answer

So if you call for lunch and get my voicemail
You’ll know where to find me
I’m at the threshold
Thriving
Thrilled to be alive
And Thankful
