My mind has been churning over making comparisons lately, so many huge decisions & choices to be made. Once again I find myself not knowing where to start & with no hand here to guide me it could become almost overwhelming .....if I'd let it. Revisiting the same thoughts & concerns repeatedly & making those same comparisons time & again serves no purpose & becomes all too consuming.
When those thoughts start creeping in I think of the three things you can't recover in life:
The moment after it's missed
The word after it's said
The time after it's wasted
So quite simply I'm not letting anything overwhelm me - I don't the time to waste on that!
I'm putting it down on paper, making lists 'pros' one side 'cons' the other - you know the routine. More often than not I find myself seriously torn...really seriously, & it surprises me. Perhaps it would help if both sides weren't quite so even!
While I'm on the subject of comparisons two images taken just a few days apart.
This was looking towards the sun rising on the morning the mailleman left for Australia.
Looking in the same direction 5 days later.
By this time the snow was well on it's way to melting so there wasn't much left - but for me it was certainly a first seeing what was left of the snow on the beach. The mountains in the background have never looked so clear or so close. I wouldn't have missed this for the warmest of tropical locations on offer!
