A journey to the top of the hill
As I was walking along the road to my goals, happily humming away to myself full of excitement about what I had set out to do. I met a man leaning against the front gate of his house and we passed the time of day.
I asked him his name and he said I’m Mr Non Starter, I asked what he was doing and he said ‘oh just watching the world go by’. I like to see everyone rushing past knowing that I am safe here by my gate nice and comfortable I may pull a few weeds later if I can be bothered’.
After a few minutes chatting I felt the urge to move on I could here this voice calling me ‘get moving come on don’t stop now before you get going’. ‘I am waiting for you’. I looked over my shoulder and saw him just standing there and shook my head as I carried on to meet my destiny.
The road was long and I eventually came to a crossroads and here was a man looking down each path scratching his head walking back and forth. I asked him what was wrong. He shook his head and said he was confused and couldn’t work out which path to take. I chatted to him and asked his name he said he was Mr Square One. I asked if I could help him to decide and where was he intending to go? He said he thought he was going to find his purpose whatever that is, but that it was too hard to decide what he wanted and where to go to find it. I think I will go back down the path I started from and maybe try again another time when I feel less confused, and if I wanted to I could walk back down the path with him.
I said no as I had places to go and the urge to move forward and get going was calling me I felt sad for Mr Square One, thinking he had already started on his journey and he was giving up so soon.
Bends in the Road
The road was long and my journey full of twists and turns as I walked along to finding my purpose, my destiny it was time to find me and I felt excited and anxious at the same time. There was a voice in my head at every obstacle or block saying that’s it keep going let me help and guide you.
I came to a particularly bendy part of the road and I had trouble seeing where I was going and got a little bit anxious as the road wasn’t clear. As I came around a bend, I saw a lady sitting on a rock and she was a little hot and bothered.
She looked worried and I asked if she was feeling alright, she said it’s all too hard and I don’t know where this path is taking me it feels very uncomfortable. I am not sure if I will carry on or take the easy path. It’s the path I know so yes that is what my mind is telling me to do. I will stay in the safe zone. I waved a cheery goodbye as I carried on my way and she shouted goodbye over her shoulder and said by the way I am Miss Comfort Zone.
I was beginning to wonder who else I would meet on this journey I had met Mr Non-Starter, Mr Square One and now Miss Comfort Zone all names that had a familiar ring in my head. I felt as if I knew them all very well.
Time for a few minutes rest and a drink, got out my journal and wrote down some things and looked at my affirmations. Refreshed and recharged with a good dose of determination I carried on my walk looking over my shoulder to see Miss Comfort Zone in the distance wandering down the easy path and thinking to myself that it seemed such a long path to nowhere – there did not seem to be an end in sight for her.
I came across a lake a very beautiful place inviting and warm and so I decided to sit for a while and think about how far I had come and who I had met along the way and thinking about how much further I had to go, dreaming about my goals, feeling pleased with myself for not giving up.
