chances to move differently

This is a bit of a tricky reminder to myself, because some of the most hopeless moments in my life have been ones where I recognize that a pattern is happening but I don’t have any idea how to do anything differently. The more deeply worn in a pattern is, the harder it is to find the hidden paths out of it. But then, some of the most vibrant and joyful times in my life have been ones where I’ve suddenly stumbled across or been shown ways to deviate from a course that seemed inevitable–and when I feel immobilized by feelings of powerlessness or uncertainty, sometimes the only thing that can lift me out of that inertia is a reminder that any tiny movement can lead to other movements.
