Riding the Turnip Truck…


Jane CarrollDon’t be afraid to let go! ~Bertha

Bertha…whisper-shouts in my ear this morning…it’s okay…it’s safe…let it go…and even though I know it is pointless…I cling to my issue like a toddler with a worn-torn blankie…

What are you afraid of…wisps through the air…

Without thinking…the answer forms…I’m afraid that if I let it go…I will do it again

And…that’s it…in some misguided way…I have felt that holding on to the unholy trinity…pain, shame, guilt…would make me safe…because…as long as I felt and experienced them as if they were…in the moment…I wouldn’t let the experience back in…

I know…it sounds very convoluted…and…it is…

Of course…Bertha…was only too happy to point that out…she said…that rather than keeping me safe…it kept me stuck…stuck in a past that no longer served me…a past that I would more than likely never repeat…unless I keep reminding myself of it every day…keeping it fresh on my mind…attracting more of the same…over…and…over…

However…if I let go…she says…my TRUTH…will create my future…and…my truth is that I have learned from the experience…I have grown…I’m back on the turnip truck…riding high…and most likely to stay there…

What can I say…that’s quite a relief…so…I guess it’s like riding a horse…or a bicycle…when you fall off the turnip truck…you gotta climb back on…and enjoy the ride…I may even drive this time…who knows…
