Jane CarrollThe other day…I unthinkingly mentioned to…Bertha…that I was bored in a certain situation in my life…and wished it was a little more…challenging

Oh…she jumped on that quicker than a Girl Scout shows up at your door when you want a cookie…asking me if that is what I really wanted…

Duh…I’m bored…I want a challenge

She just smiled and asked if what I really wanted…was to be more…stimulated

Well…aren’t they the same thing…

No…not at all…she explained…the word…challenge…indicates strife in some way…while…stimulation…indicates inspiration and enthusiasm…they are nothing like the same thing…

She went on to say that this is an important part of living my truth…knowing what I really want…and asking for it…because…as her Grandma Minnie Mae always said…be careful what you wish for…you just might get it…

What can I say…she is right…either challenge or stimulation would break the boredom…but I really don’t enjoy strife…so…now I know what to ask for…and I think I’ll spend some time in the contemplation chair just thinking about all the times I’ve said…I love a challenge

Geez…I could be there a while…
