Security or adventure? It can be a difficult choice

Sometimes we want security; and sometimes we want freedom to explore.

Sometimes we long for things just the way they are; and sometimes we want to walk out the door and have a massive adventure.

We don’t want change but then we do want change.

Sameness can crush us but change can scare us.

So which way do we jump?

Our feelings vary, they can pull us apart. There are many different voices inside us and we need to listen to them kindly.

They make speak helpfully, they may not; but each has a message which needs hearing.

Life is change whether we wish it or not. Our scenery shifts, our bodies change, our dreams alter and people come and go.

‘This too shall pass’.

Our security is allowing it to be so, without clinging, greeting each day as a gift and loving what is.
