“In my experience if you run from a thing just because you don’t like it, you don’t like what you find either. Now running to a thing, that’s a different matter, but what would you want to run to?”I have nothing terribly profound to say about these words, they just resonated with me. I sometimes wonder if I run from things too easily and am constantly making decisions not to do something, when if I were instead making decisions about what I actually went to do things might be rather easier. It can be so easy to run from things that scare us, but that means you miss out on all sorts of opportunities and new things that once they are no longer new you wonder what there was to fear anyway. Maybe I should take those things more to heart. Embrace opportunities rather than running from the bad stuff.
Anyway, this has not been an entirely cheery week, not just because of having things dropped on my head, but more because there’s just been some difficult stuff going on that has made me feel very down and subdued. G has actually been incredibly supportive in it all and has helped to make me feel a lot better, but is now off to Scotland today until Tuesday, which is not great timing, as just the thought of that makes me feel really rubbish again. Normally G going away wouldn’t bother me, but right now, even though we will speak on the phone, I could do with G being about physically. But despite it not being a good past few days, it has reminded me how very kind, loving and generous G is, which is never a bad thing to remember. For that, I am most certainly grateful. All will be brighter again in the not too distant future I’m sure.
The video below has no relevance to any of the above, I was just listening to it last night and thought there was something intriguing about the video. It is Weapon by Matthew Good.
