more u-turns

Getting stuck and you’re facing more u-turns. You’re on a treadmill and you feel like you keep making the same mistake or turn or you think you’re not moving. This situation or feeling, I think can best be described by the quotes or prose from Pema Chödrön, and TS Eliot. The hope is that we when we make that loop we’ll have a different perspective.

Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know  Pema Chödrön

a series of u-turns

Our lives and choices can be a series of u-turns and we sometimes don’t realize we’re on the u-turn loop.

The definition of a u-turn is you’re going along a road and turn, the you go in the opposite direction, it looks like a u shape. You may have missed a turn or forgot to exit or you’ve changed your mind. If you think about it you could keep going on the same loop for awhile.

I was recently traveling and this place allowed u-turns and after getting back home, I realized we often to do the loop of going out a little and coming back to the familiar and going out a little more and coming back to the familiar. The view does change until we try another direction. So I’ve been thinking and painting around the idea of u-turns lately.
