Lift the curtain and behold your dawn.
Life got you stumped? It happens. Breaking through an ongoing pattern of less-than-stellar results, no matter how hard you try, usually requires a shift in thought that leads to a shift in action.
Getting out of the stupor of treating life situations as if we have been through it all before is one of the greatest challenges we can address.
Yes, situations may have a similar appearance and sometimes involve similar participants but each and every situation holds a wild card and when you are awake enough to tap into it and play it out, you win...Not to be confused with winning an award or external display of achievement. You win a victory over the internal lock step of auto-pilot mind set.
Each and every encounter is an opportunity. Don't like your results? Shift gears and change your output/input. Then again - doing a jackrabbit dash leads to jackrabbit results. Some situations must be allowed to cook. Eventually something will click and you'll have set your unique routine into play. Then - the real challenge - repeat it. And so it goes.
The eternal joke - the harder we try, the more effort it takes. When we finally get it, there is no try; we just do. And when we arrive at being, we're done. Makes a good case for enjoying as long as one can the wonderful journey of becoming.
