Sometimes I surprise myself. And the outcome could be either direction: good or bad. Finding money in my coat pocket and missing a library book due date notice are cases in point.
Either way, these results happen because I am only human. I exceed expectation at times, and fall short in others. Meanwhile, I keep vacillating in-between. Of course, the pleasant surprises are more welcomed.
However when deviating from expectation, a creative tension happens. How we utilize this creative energy is the key to whether we move closer toward our ideals or settle for, worse yet stuck in, our realities fuming over what happened.
Recognizing this opportunity is important because the creative tension will cease. We will stop eventually, either out of time, energy, or whatever. But given the choice, I plan to reach my balance.
How about you?
