Most people try to recover from injury and trauma. They hit a dead end, throw it in reverse, and do it again.

The same habits.

The same decisions.

The same hopes for a different outcome.

Hitting dead ends is a part of life. An important part.

Reversing away from the wall enough to see the possibility of a new way is crucial, and then we must choose the new path rather than re-covering the same ground again and again.

Dead ends kill more than forward momentum. If we learn from them, they offer the death of a previous version of ourselves and the birth someone else.

A new view brings about a new you.

Unless… we merely re-cover.
