With this for the daily prompt, I feel compelled to once again post my favorite sign:
As a traffic direction, I find this wanting.
As a reminder that our options are often less limited than we might believe, I find it useful. A college classmate of mine was the oldest child in a large family. His youngest brother was accomplished at crawling forward. However, he didn’t have the concepts of reverse or turning, with the result that he would often crawl into a corner and then cry in frustration. Michael would go over, pick him up, turn him around and he was once again a happy baby, exploring his world.
It is easy to get stuck in a metaphorical corner, frustrated, scared, thinking there is only one solution and its not working. If we remember to turn around, we might discover a whole new world of options and approaches. Try a new perspective, if you don’t like it, you can always go back to your corner!
