This is my life.. A little higgledly piggldy not steady and likely to topple.
Sometimes in life it feels like there’s something missing.. have you ever felt that?
A bit of wind or uncertainty and that tower I built is falling over and let’s face it, it won’t take long before someone cannot resist to push it over but unstable just calls for someone to…in my experience take advantage or cause damage and topple.
There was a time I was a builder, I built with brick sand and mortar, lay foundations, and as a child I built with Lego, one piece at a time step by step instructions or with hours of focus frustration and care. It seems these days it’s more soft play cubes or Ikea flat packs and I know which I prefer.
I STEP BACK and take a look at my creation, it’s missing some solidity some stability, stick ability but yet a small sense of achievement shines from my face, and you know what, if it topples I will START AGAIN and maybe I will build differently and something new will appear it really is not the end of the world.
What is the true test of character – when folk do try and topple and shake you either by accident or deliberately. Wow, ouch this can be hard! Is this fun?- no, but what this teaches me is resilience in the face of adversity and a strength from within to want to prove to those folk I am not beaten.
what specific and valuable thing can I learn?
Attitude can make a difference-how to deal with people who try and topple, destroy rather than build up. – This can take skills.
Character-to persevere when things happen not as I would like.
Creation-creativity doesn’t have to be perfect in the eyes of others but to have a sense of pride in myself. Why not?
STEP BY STEP– this is slightly harder for me, but will be my mantra. “Step by step”
I can do this– now this you may think what is the big deal here? Well when you have lived a “I can’t” kinda life this new thinking is a huge huge step.
And lastly.. Support structures, do I have these in place? Do I utilise them?
Do you know who these people are in your life. Have you ever asked WHO IS A TRUE FRIEND?
Look out for those who may end up surprising you
Keep in touch..
Have a blessed day y’all.
