AS YOU STAND ALONE ON THE PRECIPICE OF DESPAIR REMEMBER THIS: YOU WILL HAVE NO ONE BUT EVERYONE ELSE TO BLAME! (Kaz Cooke’s little book of crap).
The Devil made me do it, is a reply I have heard when someone is called to account for their actions, not that you or I as the reader of this would have, no, but we all know someone who has!
In times of change, which finds us being challenged in how we do life, we often look at who is to blame.
I often find myself seeing other peoples driving as less superior to my own, while sometimes being oblivious to my own inherent bad habits.
Some years ago, I undertook a two-day course to obtain my riders license. It was intense and challenging because it showed the ability, I thought I had, was not as good as I imagined and even though I had been riding for years bad habits had developed along the way that then became the normal. Of course, I didn’t know they were bad habits until they were pointed out, OUCH!
It was only when they were challenged, and when I took ownership of those bad habits, that change was possible, and this change was for the better. With guidance from experienced instructors I quickly discovered that if I had had relied upon my years of engrained habits, it may not have impacted on not me but also those around me, fellow riders, other vehicles and any pillions.
We at MWC face challenges in the COVID normal times, we do this together as we grieve what we may no longer do and embrace new ways of being, discovering new expressions of being together, ways of expressing our faith and we may find that rather than losing we have gained something new and invigorating. This is something we do together not alone, are you ready to pack your bags and start journey?
