It is ironic that you must go to the edge to find the centre.*
We feel most comfortable when things are certain, but we feel most alive when they’re not.**
Life comes with more than one big choice available to us.
If things aren’t as we want them to be, we can adjust.
Originally from the Latin ad “to” and juxta “near.”
We don’t adjust without a good reason, though; that’s human nature.
It’s not easy. It requires time and energy.
We’re like an Australian land-train, not stopping for anything.
It takes a lot of energy to STOP! and notice the way things really are.
Physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy.
It’s easier to be pushed along our familiar trajectory by the momentum of our story so far.
There’s the cost of admitting we’ve been wrong and probably for a while.
Years and miles of keeping with something when we needed to adjust.
It may be blindingly obvious but every day provides another opportunity to adjust, to move nearer to what we want to do.
That’s the beginning of the good news.
We are also full of astonishing and wonderful things.
Values, talents, passions.
I know this.
It’s my work.
I haven’t yet come across anyone lacking these.
All of which make adjustment possible.
A new direction.
