“If you need to be proven right, learning is a challenge. If you’re eager to be proven wrong, learning is delightful.” ~ Seth Godin.

There is always tension in learning. The tension of vulnerability. But if learning occurs, that vulnerability is turned into beauty that will help those that come after will learn faster with less scars.

Embrace the possibility that you are wrong, and you will be wrong less often.

Sometimes, things take longer than we expect, but they always happen at the right time.

Time is on your side, play your part and it will compound your efforts into results that will astound you.

Push and Pull

Life is a system of push and pull.

The right design involves being pushed by your past and pulled by your future.

The past is behind you, so any push is a nudge to move forward.

The future is ahead of you, so any pull is a nudge to move forward.

This is why having a purpose-driven life is so important. It is a fuel for this design.

The opposite of this design – being pulled by your past and pushed by your future – is symptomatic of a lack of purpose.

God has done the most to make me leave circumstances that are designed to harm me.

The harder he tries, the more stubborn I become.

Then he just lets me learn the hard way. And boy, have I taken needless hard lessons.

The beautiful thing about my relationship with God is that even when He lets me have my way, He never leaves my side.

So when the eventual crash occurs, and it always does, no words are required. He knows all that has gone down. Tears are enough.

He takes me back to the start of the journey I should have been on and shows off with how beautiful He makes it.

I love you, Father.

For the times I wrong someone, I find it easier to forget the wrong done than to forgive myself.

For the times I have felt wronged by someone, I find it easier to forgive the wrong done than to forget it.

Guess where forgiveness actually happens? For me, it is in the space where I forget.

I have explored many ways to forgive and forget. One works – writing.

Writing has a way of tricking the brain into thinking it does not need to remember what has already been written.

Let’s Play

Space expands, and time shrinks when you’re having fun.

Space shrinks, and time expands when you’re on a losing run.

One way to have fun is to either expand the space you are in or reduce the time you have.

The voice that reads to me while I am reading is different from my speaking voice.

I do not know how to explain it, but my speaking voice seems to not be uniquely mine. I can recognise it in others.

However, my reading voice is uniquely mine. I have never heard its tone from any other.

This is partly why I love to read. I love listening to the voice that is uniquely mine.
