Careful not to take too much on your way up, because you most certainly will fall. Happened to me this morning on the way up the steps! True story.
You were looking for something philosophical? More profound, perhaps? Why?
Much of what life has to teach us is found in the metaphors of our everyday. Each has the potential to offer incredible insight, as well as the answers to some of our biggest questions. These unlit wicks abound all around us, but most of us are too busy, distracted, or loaded down with stuff to activate them, like I was this morning. I called myself being efficient, making one trip– my arms brimming with crap, instead of two.
Well, you see how well that logic served me. I quickly gathered my humility, and all the stuff that came tumbling down, and considered what that moment was trying to teach me just then. I should have known better, so what was I supposed to take away this time?
Chief among the revelations was that, some of what we might insist on holding on to, no longer serves, neither us nor the goals we’re ultimately trying to meet; we might just have to leave something behind. Secondly, taking too much might prevent us from making it intact, that is, if we make it at all.
Good news is if you do make it, you will recover. The sting of the new pain will subside as soon as you recall that you’ve been through worse pain. You might even laugh at yourself a bit. You recover, learn the lesson, and ultimately heal. This is good news, hopeful news, this Sunday.
Be inspired. There will be hiccups; none of them will last forever. Be encouraged. What happens in your life doesn’t have to “…take your song from you”.
