Windmills or walls, what you build is up to you but which one you go with determines everything.
There is an old Chinese proverb that says:
When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills.
Change is inevitable and no matter how hard we try to ignore it, time will always march on. We can build a wall around ourselves in hopes that it will shield us from the outside world but that wont stop the winds of change from blowing. Instead, make the most of the world around you by building a windmill to harness the inevitability of the blowing wind.
Our choices in life, for better or worse, make us who we are. Who are we but an amalgamation of our past decisions?
Choose wisely. Build a windmill, don’t wall yourself off from the outside world. Enjoy the sun and the breeze, for they bring with them everything you’ve ever wanted in life.
Change is constant, hiding from it doesn’t make it stop, or even slow it down. Running from it just tires you out, while waiting for it to stop wastes a perfectly good life. Yours.
Build a windmill.
