There are moments in my life that I feel I am at the end of it. The end of my rope. The end of my tether. With no patience or energy left.

And I wonder, to what am I bound? What am I tethered to? Where did I let myself get tied to some idea, some belief, some hope?

What I find are choices I did not consciously make. And choices I did make nonetheless.

This lets me make different choices. Choices that lets me generate more energy and more patience, without being tied to a draining tether.
