I read once that when obstacles present themselves, it means you are on the right path. I think it was Caroline Myss. Of course, I’m paraphrasing, and from memory at that.
What’s important is my takeaway. Life isn’t meant to be easy. It is meant to challenge and encourage growth, just as the gardener who digs deep into the soil, removes the debris that blocks, and then nourishes the seeds. There is always work to be done and obstacles along the way. Keep going.
Ric and I made some decisions about our life this week. For me, it marks the culmination of a dream, and therefore; I am very excited. And just as we set the wheels in motion, my computer crashes, with the threat of losing all my work. On top of that I have fallen back into a cycle of insomnia, and I shattered the lens on Ric’s camera.
It’s a bit like heading into the maze. I have no idea which route will get me out, and I don’t want to turn back, so I’ll just have to deal with the roadblocks.
Gaining some balance would be really good right now too. Keep sending your encouraging and inspirational posts – this really is my challenge this week.
(Every week I offer a challenge – for myself and readers who want to join in. This week is balance. I’m also linking this with Willow Poetry’s weekly challenge: What Do You See? for which the image is the prompt.)
