We spend so much time keeping all our plates spinning that I wonder how often we step back and look at the plates?
Sometimes the wind picks up and a plate smashes to the ground. At other times we make a decision and deliberately let a plate go or one that is worn out simply breaks on the pole. Another is when you are so busy concentrating on certain plates that others smash, because you trip up or run out of energy.
I have come to believe that to try and glue the plates back together again is a waste of energy.
Nothing happens by accident and plate breakage is one of nature’s laws as it allows room on our poles for the new.
Right now I am contemplating all sorts of china as I need a whole new collection of different plates. It’s perfectly alright to take a bit of time to choose as I could be spinning these plates for some time to come. Also I only need to start with a few. I do need to choose though, so right now I am being quiet and listening to my heart.
