Opportunities

It’s been  a long time since my last post, too long.

Busy with family affairs and daily concerns, whereas my creativity only occasionally came to light.

I do realize life can engage one’s full attention so too much time is offered to distractions and diversions.
And precisely than the challenges occur for us to learn and to be able to move on.

Some times I’m so fully wrapped up in a situation, when suddenly something happens that distracts me.
That moment is the right time to recognize what the purpose of this distraction is.
Is it a diversionary tactic or is it a way of means to let me focus on what is essential?
In the first case I will learn to stand by me and not to be misguided.
In the second case I will learn to let go of the trivial and return to what is genuine.

One day, a few months ago, I was again very occupied by taking care of daily matters such as shopping … so busy busy busy.
I walked down the mainstreet and suddenly there was a timid pidgeon. She was exhausted and couldn’t fly anymore and could hardly avoid the walking people.
Easily she let me pick her up and put her under my coat, so little energy left in her small body.
Next I took her home, called the animal-ambulance and took care of her. After several hours the medics came and took her to a bird-sanctuary.

That day didn’t go as planned, because a small living being needed (my) help.
I am grateful she helped me return to the essential, the basic of my life.
