LIFE: A PARADOXICAL CONUNDRUM

Life is full of paradoxes, that  some say require require balancing; however settling on an appropriate location on the paradox continuum,  when dealing with the paradox conundrum, may be as good as it gets!

Examples of such paradoxes include: committing oneself to the pursuit of perfection even though perfection is impossible, exerting the self-confidence necessary to succeed whilst balancing this with humility,  being eager but patient, being trustful but checking ahead of time nonetheless…

John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton described paradoxes beautifully when he stated, “When you perceive a truth, look for the balancing truth.”

Over  the next months I will expand on a number of life’s paradoxes. Please feel free to add your own as a comment.
