A loved one shared this with me a while back ‘If you don’t change it, you choose it. Read that again’. I hated it being shared, as it meant I now had to do something with it. But I understood. And for the last few weeks I have been pondering and processing the prevailing, continuously. And if there is one conclusion I have come to, at almost the end of a year that could go down in the record books only as ghastly challenging and where I felt rudely inadequate, it is this. There is indeed a point, beyond exhaustion, beyond trying, beyond seeking to understand, where we know we have no option but to change it, otherwise it will change us, forever. And I am ready, at last, to choose differently.
