"It's OK not to know. To say that whatever you are moving through feels bigger than you or that you don't know your next step. Even uncertainty shifts with the acceptance of not knowing. Being with your 'now' truth always releases a flow of energy within you. You don't have to pretend to be strong, and there is no need to constantly prove that everything is going well. It's ok to fall apart for a little while. The sooner you do, the sooner you will smile again."

World's most photographed spiral staircase at the Vatican Museums. Designed by Giuseppe Momo in The stairs are actually two separate helixes, one leading up and the other leading down, that twist together in a double helix formation.
