If you start to think the problem is “out there,” stop yourself. That thought is the problem. ~Stephen Covey
I don’t know Stephen Covey although he’s certainly famous enough. But I do know his words. Know them as an imprint on my soul.
For sometimes it doesn’t work out.
Whatever it is; it can be elusive and often downright impossible. And it’s in the not-working-out where the beauty lies.
It’s in the cracks on the facade, the slivers in the pavement, the tears in the fabric.
What beauty there is in the not-working-out, allowing for whatever is to be to be present.
To be noticed.
To be honored.
And, yes, even to be celebrated.
