A Week’s Worth of Mistakes: # 2 - Accepting Circumstances

Circumstances are a siren’s call to disaster. Temporary temptations that rip the hulls from ambition.

But circumstances are never substantive. Blow on them with intent and they change form in ways that seem unimaginable to begin with.

You can recognize them by words such as 'before', 'because', 'always' and 'must'.

They show their face when you introduce the question 'why'.

And fly screaming into the night when you say 'what if' with conviction.

The conviction that comes from recognizing that our journey is of our own making.

And that the path lies where we lay it.

Not where others decide.
