You can’t be an innocent bystander in your own life: that can lead to misfortune. Is it best to remain passive and do nothing to take care of your own needs, or to get up and go? To go to another country, to discover new worlds, to do everything differently than before and to have the confidence to take on responsibility? In so doing, you might have to leave someone behind. A bow in a shoelace and a bow in one’s hair can each be a sign of a new beginning. Holding someone’s hand at a critical moment and letting go of the hand one has clasped for so long can each be a chance to start anew.
