My Life in 5 Short Chapters

Life is a practice!  Health is a practice! If we can give ourselves the grace to continue to try to learn from our experience we can transform everything!  Here is a great metaphor for life.  I hope I can make my life in 1-2 short chapters in the future! Thank you Portia Nelson.

MY LIFE IN 5 SHORT CHAPTERS

CHAPTER 1 -  I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk
I fall in.
I am lost...
I am hopeless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

CHAPTER 2) I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I'm in the same place.
But it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

CHAPTER 3) 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
My eyes are open; I know where I am;
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

CHAPTER 4) I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

CHAPTER 5) I walk down another street.”
