Strings attached

Strings are useful. Shoestrings for example, need them… I can name many good reasons why strings are super, uber, useful. Today, I found out how I could do with a few strings attached and those not needed. And why, they can feel like a chain – the only thing missing is the lock without the key.

The reality is, we need things from others and others’ need things from us. This is the way of the human. I found myself in a win-not win situation. I remind myself that I’ve lived half a century, therefore, I am primed to shoot for Win-Wins.

The problem? A string attaches to the beginning and doesn’t exist at the end. Thus, my problem. A string with a beginning but no end, or, a beginning, but jagged and ripped edges throughout. Which means it could at any time rip and tear apart. Right before the start.

My advice? Follow the string… if it leads to a very good and strong piece of something wonderful, do! If not, let it go. Simple.

Many blessings folks! Take good care of yourselves and others.
