Tangled Up

Tangled up.  It can be a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on your circumstances, and…what for it…your attitude.

If it’s a bad situation, you’re trying to figure out how to get out.  If it’s REALLY bad situation, you’re maybe panicking as you struggle to break free.   You’re probably a little anxious (or a lot), you’re scrambling in your mind to get yourself loose.

On the other hand, if it’s a good situation, you’re pretty happy to the embraced by whatever the situation happens to be.   You’re enjoying the experience, wondering how long it will go on.  If it’s REALLY good, you hope it goes on for a long while.

You can be tangled up figuratively, or literally.   You could be caught up in barbed wire (ouch), or a child’s embrace (ahhh), or a conversation you’d rather not be having, or one you’re really enjoying, as the sun comes up after talking all night.

Regardless, I think the message is the same:  Be present.  Be very present.  If you need to get out, you need your full concentration to come up with an escape plan to execute.  If you don’t want it to end, soak up every second, with all five senses, and be there.

Either way, make the most of the situation.

Make it GOOD.
