Five short chapters

Monday, June 17, 2013

Several years ago someone gave me this cute story and I came across it today when I
was looking for something else. I thought I would like to share this with you dear Spark friends. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Cute and oh so true with so many things in life. Being Spark healthy people who keep at it daily, I think you will enjoy this little story. emoticon Life is full of choices we get to make and sometimes it takes awhile before we figure it out and "JUST do the next right thing." emoticon

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.
It takes forever to find a way out.

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 cannot 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 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.

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

I walk down another street.

where you walk. Remember there is another path if we are on the wrong one. God bless. We are all winners since we do show up each day on this Fantastic website.

    Thank you for the reminder that it is possible to find our way even though it isn't evident at the time. It is true that we often continue to do the same things over and over with the same results. However, as we learn how to do things differently unexpected things will happen. I have learned many things from my Spark friends which has made a big difference in my life. emoticon
