Do I want it? Is it really worth the price? Most of the time I cannot tell. How do others know so well? I think I’ll pass on this small choice, I think I’ll find a bigger voice. DESIGNING, PLANNING AND STRUCTURING OUR BUILDING 55 A voice of definites; absolutes and all. A voice that is never small or tall. A voice that says there’s much and more. A voice that I can trust for sure, Routine. Plans gone wrong Routine, order and knowing what comes next are very important. Sometimes our plans don’t seem to go the way we had hoped and this causes us distress.
Our building has to weather many seasons I like the analogy of comparing winter to the development of hope. During autumn, death of leaves on trees, grass in fields, and blooming flowers is very evident. In winter, death seems to complete its job. The deciduous trees are bare of leaves; the cold wind and weather takes away the warmth; animals may hibernate and sleep until spring returns. Winter is a time for apparent bareness, bleakness and a lack of life. Actually, this is as far from the truth as the north wind is from the south wind.
At times I need to do this alone and to myself. At other times I need to do this publicly. I have found at such times, a letter is a good idea. Writing what one feels or thinks can be easier than saying it face to face. If I am finding that a relationship with a friend, neighbour or workmate is becoming uncomfortable, then I give myself some time to process my discomfort and sort it out. Telling others how you feel or what you think won’t always mean that they agree with you and are pleased with you.
