When I experience turmoil, I wish for peace and calmness. When I loose a relationship, I appreciate the ones I have even more. The light is never as longed for, as in the darkest hours.
As soon as I experience something I don’t want, it takes me closer to what I do want. If I choose to be observant and alert, and see it that way.
When I’m in the midst of things I don’t want, I can turn towards what I do want. And already I’m a step closer to what I want.
It is the contrasts between the unwanted and the wanted, the good-feeling stuff and the uncomfortable, the calm and the stormy, that more clearly make me feel what I want, what I prefer. It makes me sharper in my choices and in my definition of who I want to be.
