We’ve always known the term, ‘things are not always what they seem’, and that’s never been more true for me than recent revelations/insights.
Not who I am, but how I am.
I think there is a deeper, more profound inference worth considering. It’s more than dreaming or designing a life based on what we know, what we’ve seen, and what we’ve been exposed to, but also what we can learn to do differently, see differently and imagine differently …
Things are never what they seem to be.
Nobody knows us. They cannot – no matter how deeply we explain – understand what we say and do, why we say and do it, and what our motivations might be because these speculations are always, at best, guesswork.
So, where is the guidance in that?
Should we guess more or question more?
