Conflicts within

Each of us stands with a tension of what we are and the ideal of what we are trying to become.

This conflict causes us to constantly look to the horizon for better days ahead.

If we are always caught looking too far ahead, we tend to ignore what is right is in front of our noses. And that is the progress we have made that has led us here.

We don’t have to run away from the past. In fact, we can learn to sit with it. On the other hand, none of us will ever reach perfection, but that doesn’t stop many of us from pursuing it.

As they say, “It’s a journey, not a destination.”

Some journeys are full of yellow brick roads while others are wondering paths less traveled.
