Newton's first

We are all enabled by certain forces to act upon innate powers of human existance. We all have the power to stand back and decide to make any situation a positive learning experience or a bad memory fit only for nightmare food. The moves and travels we make as humans are not simply the next one and the next one in a line of instincts, they are choices which help to decide the color of the next curtain one and curtain two. We must always consider that in our lines of choices we establish agendas, quiet propagandas, and portrayals of our depths that will carefully last far past our possible intentions. Although it is not often considered and often we leave its name behind and replace it with something a little more familiar, the forces of Newton's first can be studied to help govern the creations of our agendas.

Every body perseveres in its state of being at rest or of moving uniformly straight ahead, except insofar as it is compelled to change its state by forces impressed.

According to wikipedia, inertia is the property of an object to resist changes in velocity unless acted upon by an outside force. Inertia is dependent upon the mass and shape of the object. Meaning: it's going to stay still until you push it and never stop or turn until something pushes back. This means that if we choose to remain stagnant and still, that stillness holds just as much weight in it's chance of remaining as a runner pushing it to the finish line. This force does not only affect whether we move or stand still, it also affects our direction. We will continue to move directly down the line of our last push until we choose to sway the course. We must also consider that our actions expand laterally and can affect the trajectory of others just as their motion affects our own paths. Our expanding ripple pools bounce off of those with which we are surrounded as well. And if we are offset and running backwards we will only find ourselves caught in our own wake.

I have chosen for myself a path of positivity and forward motion. I have hushed my pools as much as possible to conserve favor for when I am ready to splash. This path is lonely, because although I always exercise tolerance and empathy, I cannot find it in me to condone apathy. My inertia is finally strong and direct, and I will not work to continue to surround myself with static pools who steal my waves.
