When it gets overwhelming.

It always seems impossible until it’s done.

Nelson Mandela

Acknowledging the obstacles seem appropriate: to take a moment to look at them, clearly they want attention. They are there to tell us what we are afraid of, what we are here to move through. I find it comforting to know that and to acknowledge them with some love and respect rather than to dwell in the dramatic pause they cause otherwise. The point then, for me, is to move through or around them systematically, unreactively, and impersonally. Like a stream, unhindered, rushing through the rocks that blocks its course.
