Reena’s Exploration Challenge #157

 Life is like a series of twists and turns, angles and perspectives.

You think you have a handle on everything only to discover something has popped up to throw the proverbial spanner in the works.

But that’s life.

The challenge is always to deal with it and cope with whatever consequences come our way.

Not everything can be solved; you don’t win every battle you take on; that’s the whole point of life.

Some people crave a life of uniformity where it’s the same thing day in and day out.

The problem with that is that when confronted, they often have little idea as to what to do about it and so may panic, throw their arms in the air and retreat further away from reality.

Its what makes life interesting. You never know what might happen on any given day. Its like learning, you hope to do so each day you are alive, there’s always something to challenge your mind, in my case its often something requiring me to do something physical or mechanical.

The instruction sheet for any given project invariably finds me putting things on back to front or upside down and having to undo and start again. I’ve discovered that for me, putting down the job, going away and having lunch, for example, seems to clear the fog from my brain and a solution appears through it.

Often the simple can be irritatingly confusing.

    I found that out too. Walking away from a problem or puzzle can clear the mind to tackle it later.

    I admire the simplicity with which you can put forth complex truths.
