Litany of Fears

You have to figure out what you want…what you have…and what you’re willing to do about it. ~Bertha

That’s…Bertha’s…prompting to me this morning…and…what I found as I Jane Carrollcontemplated her questions…was…that I wasn’t clear on the first step… what do I want…I want this…but then I would put a caveat on it…which essentially was my own fear…would it take too much of my time…would it take too much of my energy…would I really like it if I got it…and…the litany continued…one fear after another…

In fact…I never got to the other two questions…but…she said that was okay… because if I can’t get clear on the first one…the other two aren’t really that important…

Hmmm…I see some more contemplation time in my near future…

When Dreams Come True…

For years…I’ve had a recurrent dream…well…I’ve had several…but…this one always stands out…I go into a dark room…and flip the light switch…but nothing happens…somehow…I know that the bulbs aren’t shot…I know the light should work…but…

They don’t…

Last week…the dream…came true…I headed to the kitchen…dark and early…and flipped the living room switch…nothing…nadda…then…flicker…strobe…flicker…wiggle the switch…lights…

Honestly…the first time it happened…I thought I was just still asleep…or…perhaps the switch by the front door wasn’t turned completely off…but…it continued to happen…until…

It didn’t…

Meaning…the light wouldn’t come on…or…it continued to strobe…making me want to do a bit of disco…but…mostly…it didn’t come on…

So…here I sit…waiting for the electrician…but…it’s okay…I like the electrician…he’s funny…he makes me laugh…he does a good job…he’s reasonable…doesn’t take my arms and legs when he leaves…and…I’m taking the morning off…getting a few things done…

Bertha…reminds me…that the dream is about fear…fear of the unknown…and…that the situation…is just a demonstration…that there really isn’t anything to fear…it will all work out…I’ll keep my appendages…and have a few belly laughs…

What could be better than that…
