It’s never just one thing that makes the door fall off the hinges —
It usually is one thing —
More than others —
That had you listened to it when it —
Pinged you in the gut, blocked the alleyway, raised its hand and commanded —
Gehen Sie nicht weiter!!!
Had you only listened and let yourself hear—
“If I do nothing — if I say nothing — it will only be a matter of time before this knocks me out cold and leaves me for dead —”
Well, perhaps I would not be struggling to breathe now, arms and legs pinned beneath the rubble —
Options for my next moves — extremely limited —
Narrowed and impaired.
But thankfully, there are still a few more moves to make from this position.
And I’m not done yet.
