I’ve been re reading meditations by Marcus Aurelius and have been sitting with this quote a bit.
“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”
It’s definitely one that resonates with me as no matter how we plan our journey, life has a way of placing obstacles in our path.
We get to choose how to engage with them. It can motivate or deflate. I tend to take an obstacle as a challenge to prove I can overcome it, work around it, work with it, or pick it up and carry it along until I figure out what to do with it. It may prove to be useful after all.
Also it’s OK to just put it down and move on. There really are no rules to this thing. Just more what you might call guidelines.
