A Strong Foundation…


Bertha…is nudging me with a message this morning…essentially that I am exactly where I need to be in life…now…on the surface…that sounds encouraging…reaffirming…but…it doesn’t quite sit that way…I can feel a whine coming on…

How can I be where I need to be…when I’m not where I want to be…

How can I be where I need to be…when I’m working 10 hours a day outside of writing…how can I be where I need to be…when I’m still XY pounds overweight…how can I be where I need to be…when my bank account is only XYZ dollars…

And the list goes on…

But…Bertha…insists…I am indeed where I need to be…I am learning the lessons…the skills…making the connections…eating the food…walking the path…that will take me to where I want to be…

Somehow that makes perfect sense to me…I need to be here…so when I do get to where I want to be…I’ll have the foundation to stay there…and the parable of building a house on sand or rock comes to mind…

That feels reassuring…the whine is gone…I’m building a foundation…definitely where I need to be…

Jane
