Can You Turn Your Focus?

Quotes and Notes #275, August 6

It's over there, on the other side of that hole in the wall. Turn, quickly

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”—Helen Keller—

Inertia is the law of physics that makes a moving object maintain its direction, resisting turns, deviations, and creativity. If our direction is not quite to our satisfaction, we may summon up the strength to begin a drift to a bit of a different course. The first step to a different direction is usually the hardest, and then the steps become easier and easier.

Look around, are you so focused into your inertia-driven course that you are missing windows to the right or the left? Is there a hole in the wall with a better world on the other side? Do you dare to peek through?

No matter what, keep smiling
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
