The way forward ...

The best way forward is to keep our attention on the path we want to take rather than the one we want to avoid. I have known this my whole life - but I am still amazed at how easily my attention can still be drawn away from the more preferable outcomes to focus to those outcomes I would rather avoid. I doubt I am the only one that falls victim to this trap … the mind cannot help but run down many possible pathways that lead forward from our present … some good, some not so good, some (under special conditions) dire in the extreme; over-focussing on the latter, can be one of life’s most toxic and debilitating experiences. The future is as yet, unwritten … possibilities, all remain just that …. possibilities. JBW
