not on their negativity and hypocrisy…but on my awareness, on my ability to step outside their mud puddle.

not on her demand for attention, her antics to be acknowledged…but on my self-sufficiency, on my professionalism.

not on their back-biting, gossiping, small-minded, hateful attempts of ego-inflation…but on being, doing, saying, thinking, projecting everything its opposite. On humility, first.

not on being invisible to them…but being free of them.

not on hostility…but on being open.

Open during every challenge, ruffle, burden, puzzle, irritation that comes…

Focus on that, for now.

They say: “nothing stays the same”, “change is the only constant”, “All is flux; nothing stays still.”

And yet, why do the same things, the same people, the same situations repeat?
They move around me, randomly, in and out of my lap.
Movement is not change.

“Well, you must have not learned your lesson!”

Please. That lesson book has been stained with red ink, wrinkled pages, and slammed shut long ago. I’ve learned.

Trust me.

I’ve white-knuckled through the growing pains, already. I’ve shifted, acknowledged, amended, and changed.

So, why, this, again?
