Contemplating solutions is a favorite pass time of many competitive people. They usually call themselves “problem solvers”. By The way, don’t put that on your resume, it’s not fashionable anymore…so say “the experts”.
Finding answers to riddles was a favorite activity for me, too, when I was a child. Many times I would keep the answer to myself just so I can see what others come up with…sometimes it was boring, sometimes they had the exact same thinking; I guess some minds do think alike…
Today I found myself in a little maze. It was quite fun to keep my mouth shut for a change. Lately I have been ready to just blurt out the answer to all, mainly because they knew it, and were waiting on me to voice it, as I’ve done so many times… speaking their minds when they weren’t ready to…I let them down today. I let myself up, though. Like a hand stretched down to me, I felt this pull, and from the merry-go-round at full speed, I was extracted into the timeless peace. Again. Someone is trying really hard to remind me that I am a loved child…I am, however, so forgetful….it’s this darn “human nature”. If not, it’s just nature, period. It keeps messing with my senses…confusing me even more!
But as today it was that time again, to be caught like a feather in free fall, before I hit the ground, I thought you might need the reminder…you know, just in case you are as human as I am and you, for a moment there, forgot to let go. In that sunshine there is peace, and love, and hope, and quiet. Mostly quiet…and a feeling of comfort.
Here’s to a comforting week! May the ray shine on you, too!
