what do you think ?

 

Chapter 1

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.

 

Chapter 2

I walk down the same street, there is a deep hole in sidewalk.

I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in again.

I can’t believe I am in 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 there. I still fall in … it’s a habit … but, 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 .

 

——” Autobiography in Five Short Chapters”, by Portia Nelson -

 

Here’s another one to share -

In your life, which chapter are you in ? Me, I think I am in Chapter 3. But I still struggled with life, and how to get to the next chapter so that I can get out immediately… (perhaps, my one of bad habits) – stubborn, ¬†What about you, what chapter are you in and do you know how to get to the next chapter ? If your answer is yes, would you please share it with me ?

Again, when I feel down or have a difficult time – I search for answers, encouragement, comfort or inspiration from my friends … I also love to read short story or poem, to meditate and to work out … this does help, but this is not good enough to give me what I wanted, I need more.
