The circumstances are never ideal.

If I ever follow that dream…or become my best self…or make a difference…or find joy and fulfillment…(put in here whatever goal you want to pursue)…it will have to be done in circumstances that are in many ways not favorable to those pursuits.

There will always be the drag of the ordinary, the drain of routine, the relationship problems, the work problems, the reasons to postpone or just go with the flow.

That’s why I like George Bernard Shaw’s words:

People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them make them.

Remember the movie Dances With Wolves? Native Americans saw Kevin Costner’s character dancing around a wolf and gave him that name as a sign of respect.

Starting now, may we call you Dances With Circumstances?
