In life there are weeks where it seems that everything in the universe is conspiring against us. Where it’s not just one small thing, but a procession of small things which then mutate into bigger things. Where we might be forgiven for thinking what’s the point? and why should I bother? Surely it would be easier to just give up.
I feel that this week my small things have mutated into bigger things; imagine the line of elephants in the Jungle Book movie with each elephant representing something that’s derailed your plans. Each elephant blocking the way between where you are now and where you want to be. Obstructing your progress but also obstructing your view.
Where do you stand? Behind the line, waiting for the elephants to move forward so that you can follow at their pace? In front of the line, pushing back against them? Or off to the side doing your own thing, walking in the wrong direction, moving away from the obstacles?
Your approach right now can determine your future, choose carefully.
