“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”


Sometimes...I think the very opposite pertains - if there is struggle, there is NO progress.

A friend once described it to me in a way that made perfect sense to me.

He put it to me that very often I behave like a wasp trapped in the double-glazing, battering myself against the glass in a desperate attempt to escape. What I failed to realise was that the window was open at the top and open at the bottom. If I could just stop struggling, let myself sink effortlessly downwards or float upwards then I'd be free.

He's so right...and I promised myself I'd keep that image in my mind ALWAYS and remember it especially when I was struggling with things. Did I? Of course I didn't!

 But thankfully, I remembered it this morning...
