Your Autobiography In Five Short Chapters?

in Personal Development

If the following poem entitled, “Autobiography In Five Short Chapters” describes your current situation (at least through 4 chapters of it) then you need to consider seeking alternative paths to health, wealth, and happiness. Change is inevitable. Whether you want to or not, circumstances will eventually arise to push you into a new dimension of your life. This doesn’t mean it will be all bad, just different. I think we’ve all been down this road before. Our unwillingness to change is simply a matter of releasing what is comfortable and trying something new. Embrace the newness, take the class you always wanted to take, explore starting that business you always wanted to start, meet new people and watch your world open up to endless possibilities.

Autobiography In Five Short Chapters

Chapter I

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost… I am hopeless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter II

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in this same place.
But it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter III

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it there.
I still fall in… it’s a habit… but,
my eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

Chapter IV

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

Chapter V

I walk down another street.
