After new year’s eve, I was contemplating about this part in one of my favorite books. And whichever time of the year, I love remembering and realizing it:
None of us enjoys going around in circles, always passing through the same territory and coming back to the same problems, same frustrations, same mistakes, and same limitations. Although it may often feel like it, there is never a time when nothing is happening in your life. That’s because whether you realize it or not, you are never standing still. You are either going forward or you’re sliding back.
Take care, everyone.

Your post reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from The Wonder Years: “Life isn’t a series of straight lines, it’s one of advances and retreats.” Thanks for sharing your wonderful version. 🙂

i agree with you. this post reminds me of a book passage: “we do without doing and everything gets done” — or something to that effect. i suppose this is why it’s called “the circle of life” 🙂

Sa akin naman, it reminds me of Forrest Mom’s explaination about life. “Life is like a box of chocolate. You don’t know what you’re getting until you taste it”.
