i'm thinking about our resistance to trying something different when the approach we've taken so far, has been ineffective. what hinders change is the feeling of regret about how long we'd been committed to a course that would ultimately not work as we'd hoped. there is guilt over whether we could have/should have done something else, sooner. this regret or guilt keeps us stuck in the past, unable to see the possibilities within the present.
the truth is that when we do the best with what we know (who we are) at a given moment--no matter where we're led--we can trust that all is well. the journey remains timely.
