In life, a shortcut is the longest distance between two points.
Like you, I like a shortcut. Instant gratification. But when it comes to growing up, there are no shortcuts. In life, a shortcut is the longest distance between two points! Time is involved. Not mere quantity, but quality time too must emerge. For so many, it means "growing your self up all over again." That takes courage. Commitment. When one becomes willing to do whatever it takes, the stuckness can be diverted at any time. Moving out of a needless cycle. And into creation and recovery. Free!
