They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder
But lo and behold, eyes change as you get older
Personal preference is a funny thing
My personal standards are maddening
Wanting something you don’t know how to get
Is subtly different from wanting what you can’t have
But no matter what you can’t get it. Get it?
Stuck, unable to move forward
The frustration and the pain
You could abandon and start again
The regret and the pain
Regret and pain are the only guarantees either way
Because either way you can always get stuck again
Sometimes something new can get you somewhere, somehow
It can even get you progress
It can help you go backwards to go forwards
It can help you go forwards and then backwards
Old or new, it’s never good to be stuck
To be still, stranded, stalled, stagnant
Not moving, unmoving
Moving on is hard
But moving gets momentum
So move. It doesn’t matter where or how. Just move.
Stop being stuck.
