Obstacles

Obstacles.
Aside from the way the word sounds, in it's almost comical manner of sounding made up, an obstacle is a nuisance of a barrier. Yesterday, I really felt trapped in to a distinctly unhappy box by all the obstacles that were making themselves known. In one single moment I counted all of the obstacles getting in the way of a smooth existence which left me feeling gloomy.
It's ungrateful to dwell on negatives or to find fault and point the finger. Much as I cannot identify with the overly optimistic 'every problem is an opportunity' or whatever guff it is that gets bandied around, there has to be some way to break through barriers and make life more positive.
Clinging to things which bring joy is a must. My mind is always drawn back to the quote about balance from The Devil Wears Prada where Nigel says to Andy something about when your life is going up in smoke, you know it's time for a promotion. The better things get on one side of the scales, the worse they get on the other. It's so true, you only have a finite amount of time and energy which has to be spread in a way that works for you. If you plough it all one way there will be none left for anything else. Equally, when you spread yourself too thin nothing can be achieved on any one aspect. Plates wont spin themselves.
