A useful article, Elle, thank you. Especially so, when I recalled an article by Thomas Oppong, who says: “You will never be ready. Do it anyway!” Thomas O cites Paulo Coelho, in that life is complicated when we form habitual responses:

“Because doing something might be extremely uncomfortable for us we create a third state of mind, a slight nuance between the two predefined ones. We call it “almost ready”. *

When I searched around in my own mind, I certainly found many personal examples. I learned a great deal from Oppong’s article, and now realise, when I’m faced with situations, when:

we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. — Paulo Coelho” *

As Life certainly does not look back. peace, Susanne
