All Kinds of Pieces.

Change--intentional, directed change--moves as fast as you want it to. And if you choose to resist, to hold yourself back, don't fool yourself into thinking you're standing still. Life is a current. Resistance is retrograde motion by default. The end result is always broken pieces.

Sometimes, though, you have to break first in order to heal.

Everybody stumbles. Get back up. Keep moving.

We never heal perfectly, but we're strongest in the broken places.
