Dancing with the Skeleton of a Lost Cause?

When we hang on to the pain or complain about…

  • how much better things used to be
  • aging
  • the weather
  • aches and pains
  • people we have lost
  • circumstances we don’t like

We may as well admit that we are dancing with a skeleton: a skeleton of a desire or an illusion about ourselves or our future.

When we give up trying to change things we cannot control, we…

  • finally see how ridiculous we are to those who have had to put up with our fantasy, and
  • free ourselves to dance with a real partner
