THRIVING IN CONTRADICTIONS

PALM SPRINGS IS HOT. PALM SPRINGS IS COLD.

SEATTLE IS RAINY. SEATTLE IS SUNNY.

SHOWBIZ IS FULL OF BULLSHIT. SHOWBIZ IS FULL OF SINCERITY.

It can be 108 degree in Palm Springs. And it can be 43 degrees.

If you elect in to live in Palm Springs how do you prepare yourself to thrive under both realities?

Do you endlessly bemoan the aspect you don’t like and just suffer through either the heat or the cold?

Do you limit your participation to only the weather condition that is your natural preference, thus missing out on a huge swatch of reasons and opportunities to be there in the first place?

Or do you find a way to embrace both aspects to fully experience being there?

It can be quite rainy in Seattle. And it can also be sunny.

How does a sun-worshiper thrive in rainy Seattle? How does one who moved there for the rain deal with it when it’s gone?

Some things offer strong contradictions.

Showbiz is filled with both bullshit and sincerity.

How does one thrive here if they are allergic to bullshit and try to avoid it at all costs?

How does a bullshitter deal with the sincerity of others?

Showbiz is a complex, multidimensional, schizophrenic beast.

How does one incorporate those contrasts to ride that beast to serve themselves best?
