Right now, there is something that I want. I really want this thing. Well, it isn’t a thing exactly, more like a circumstance. I don’t mean to be all secretive but I can’t tell you what it is. I mean, I love you all but some things just aren’t meant to be shared on the internet. Not yet.
It doesn’t matter anyway because this is about all of us together so you just imagine your own thing because at the end, I am going to ask you something.
Okay, so the allegory goes like this:
I want to go on a trip. I believe I can go if I just get everything ready. I get all my ducks in a row, iron (insert muffled laughter here), get the dog and kids ready and five of us hop in the car. We think, we believe, it is time for the trip. We all want to go.
We get to the airport, grab our bags and head toward the counter to buy our tickets. We have the money and all the paperwork. Everything is as perfect as we can make it.
We arrive at the counter and announce our intention to board the plane. The agent looks at us calmly.
We ask questions. I plead.
“No. Go home.” Nicely, gently, certainly.
I want to know why but there is only one answer.
“No. Go home.”
Does this mean “not today” or “not ever?”
Have I done something wrong? Do I wait? I have done everything that I know to do. I showed up for the trip and got sent home. I don’t even know why or really even what the answer means. I am a woman of faith so what do I do with this?
DO I GIVE UP? Let go and move on?
When does “no” mean “no” and when does it mean “not now” and most importantly…
How do I know?
HOW DO YOU KNOW?
Does it even matter if you know? What do YOU do when you get sent home?
The actual circumstances don’t matter. If you are going to forward or share this post, please consider doing so after you add your own insight in the comments. The best way to go the unknown is together.
It is well,
On a lighter note...
When we had a blast at the Tough Mudder...happier than a pig in mud.
