No matter what, no matter who,
No matter where, no matter.
You are never too late.
To be too late is to acknowledge
that you know exactly the when,
the what, and the where at every turn and step.
Yet as soon as you start believing that,
then you should recognize as well
that you are deeply convinced
that everything is predefined
and there is no wiggle room.
Can you guarantee it
For you to be too late,
everything needs to be perfectly square
and, in its predisposition, an elegant narrative
you have no control of or driving, for that matter.
For being in full control
assumes never being late,
and simultaneously to be driven
by an exact path you cannot control
reflects the precision of showing up
exactly when you need to.
Isn’t that a wonderful conundrum?
And which one is it?
You are never too late
because the narrative of control
escapes you in its beauty predates you.
Be as it may, control or none,
what stays true in either world you choose,
never too late you are.
This is an insightful read on constraints in the spirit of 2024 on the horizon. John states: “Perhaps it’s worth asking whether you are the kind of person who will comply with your own rules, or whether you actually might benefit more from deep introspection, perhaps through conversation with others, to really question your character, your values, and your true aspirations in life. You won’t stick to new rules unless you have a flexible sense of identity which can adapt to accommodate the lifestyle of someone who follows such rules. If you are not willing to shed your skin and let go of attachments to the ‘old you’, you will never become the ‘new you’.”
