“In a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.” -Warren Buffett”
Remembering things that I have let go. A sadness in moving forward. A wrenching. Every time one moves forward one has to let go of things, people, places. It’s like life demands that we leave what is known, comfortable and safe and pushes us into the unknown.
And yet to stay becomes its own prison. Closing the door to the future is as dangerous, hard and life draining as moving forward into unknown experiences which with all its own set of fears can be.
Not sure where all these dark thoughts are emerging from. Part of it is that I am having to make choices of what to do with my time and energy. Should I really focus time on becoming a writer of children’s books when I am such a long way from getting there? Can I stay with it long enough to get better?
Maybe it’s the “after birthday – getting older” syndrome.
Today’s Three Sunshine (Gratitude) Moments:
1. Loving that I have such a wonderful life partner. How blessed.
