A Stern Talking To
A few days ago, I had a moment that eclipsed the Veruca Salt tantrum in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
I wanted my gooses and geeses and golden eggs – hundreds of golden eggs. And, maybe a well-behaved, nut sorting squirrel or two. And, throwing in being the empress of the universe seemed like a good thing too.
While Superman can leap a building in a single bound AND look graceful at the same time, grace and accuracy have never my strong suit.
As I leapt for the sky to bound over the building in my path of cosmos domination, gravity had a thing or two to say and it wasn’t pretty. That’s when my patented SPLAT-SLITHER move happened. I slammed into my obstacle and pancaked like a cartoon character, making squeaky noises as my flattened self slid down to the ground.
What caused all this drama? Everything and nothing. The universe has been re-teaching me lessons in patience and goal setting.
Reminder #1: Set realistic goals that I know I can achieve.
Reminder #2: See Reminder #1.
Reminder #3: Don’t forget Reminder #1
I’ve experienced the turbulence that knock goals astray. I’ve been the turbulence that have stymied my goals – then, I have a stern talk with myself.
