“L’écart entre le réel et l’espéré” : The gap between the real and the hoped…
When the gap is too wide, what happens? We drift.
Drifting is boat vocabulary. You can say you’re out of gas. Or you’re stuck. Parked. You’re powerless. Whatever.
Drifting means you have no steam and you let go. Maybe you watch. Maybe you wait. Maybe you think. Drifting is interesting. Be angry. Or zen. You could get lost… That’s maybe cool!
If you know the 4 laws of action when you have a problem, when you have a gap between the real and the hoped :
- You can go away. No gap any more, because the hope has gone.
- You can change the way things are. New boat. New rivers…
- You can change your hopes. Invent new ones.
- You can just shut up – and accept the gap.
Meantime, drift. Wait. Quarrel. Drown. Insist. Watch. Endure. Actualize.
You have the right to say no to “Don’t forget to smile”. Drifting people who fakesmile on their boat look like lunatics!
Stand up, though. The horizons could signal.
OK. There’s always hope : Remember to smile back, one day!
Have a nice day!
