I do a lot of soul searching and reading lately. I admit it has always been easier to find answers when they are for someone else. This week I have been focused on Hope. I have always thought that it is the strongest force in the universe. Tonight, or tomorrow I will type a lot about what I have learned this week. However, This struck me today and I wanted to share it with everyone. I believe this applies to everyone. Which Chapter are you on?
“Autobiography in Five Short Chapters” by Portia Nelson
“I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost… I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. I takes forever to find my way out.”
“I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. O pretend I don’t see it. I fall in again. I can’t believe I am in the same place. But it isn’t my fault. It still takes a long time to get out.”
“I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it is there. I still fall in……. It’s a habit….. but, my eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.”
“I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.”
“I walk down another street.”
