An insight has inspired me to view “upsets” as dangling carrots vying for my attention.
“Look at ME”, they say.
“Talk about ME.”
“Think about ME.”
“STAY AWAKE with me!”
Sometimes for hours.
Sometimes for days and for one or two “issues”; actual years!
Disrupting, distorting, derailing:
Progress, productivity, creativity.
This dangling carrot: a flag, a signal. Not to attend to but to turn from.
And staying there.
This attention produces.
Peace, clarity, sense, quiet and more…
