Comforting Thought: We are in a tight spot

The Sensual World of The Unseen By Photographer Duane Michaels

Anxiety is not optional in life.. It’s a part of life. We come into life through anxiety. We look at it and we remember it and say to ourselves: We made it. We got through it. In fact, the worst anxieties and the worst tight spots in our life, often, years later, when we look back on them, reveal themselves as the beginning of something completely new….And that can give us courage…in looking forward and saying: Yes: this is a tight spot. It’s about as tight a spot as the world has ever been in, or at least humankind. But if we go with it…it will be a new birth. And that is trust in life. And this going with it means that you look, and ask, what is the opportunity?
