365 Grateful: 05.11.2014

365 - 05-11-2014

“Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.” Alfred Adler, the “father of individual psychology” said that. I’ve been thinking about this a lot today. The basic meaning is clear: talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words. So it’s an exhortation to do, rather than say we’ll do or even honestly intend to do.

But my thoughts wander off to consolidations and reorganizations and restructurings … when I apply this thought to those events, it’s eye-opening. Because this: if I trust movement over words, but movement isn’t in tune with said words, the resulting huge chasm between them is filled with mistrust.

Many of us want, cry for, seek communication — sometimes we get it, frequently we don’t. I say watch the action, because that is where the truth lies. Grateful for that insight today.
