The Spiral Staircase

Spiral Staircase

Each time we stumble, it’s easy to feel despondent, defeated, and as if we’ve not progressed an inch in the last month, year, decade or lifetime.

Round and round, the same issues, the same blocks, the same struggles.

Yes, we are going round, but on a spiral staircase, where each step elevates us higher.

Whenever we look down, we see places like this we’ve passed before. But this time we’re further up, more experienced, more accomplished, a greater artist.

The spiral staircase may never end. It doesn’t matter.

What matters is we’re creating and evolving ever upwards.
