Then and Now

In the path of growth, every step leads the way.

What serves then and what serves now?

Then: Hate that I hate myself.

Now: See the paradox of hating hatred.

Then: “You are not ambitious,” said the voice in disdain.

Now: “I am not ambitious,” said the voice in pure relief.

Then: I am sorry I don’t know.

Now: I don’t know.. (grins)

Then: Find a tribe so that you won’t be alone

Now: Alone is nice.

Then: Stop being angry at the little things.

Now: Anger points to hidden things.

Then: I have to let go of ‘not good enough’.

Now: ‘Not good enough’ is a thought that drifts by.

Then: It’s ok to be anxious.

Now: It’s really ok to be anxious.

Then: Manage the pain.

Now: Feel the pain.

Then: I am on the path.

Now: What path?

Then: Say yes.

Now: Say yes and no.

Then: Breathe well.

Now:  Breathing.

Then: Love ice-cream.

Now: Still love ice-cream.

Then and now.

Now and then.

If there isn’t a then

there won’t be a now

Honour the then

Savour the now
