Failings are like Filings
Failings are like filings… like chips being chopped off a block, fragments of rock from the sculptors chisel, like iron filings being removed with a rasp.
This week I woke up in the middle of the night with this distinct imagery in my head. This was most unusual as I sleep like a log and definitely not one being chipped away at, but it struck me enough to get out of bed and write it down.
It has been a month full of life’s pressures from all angles, work, Homecoming (if your from Texas you REALLY get it) and the news that my ex was getting re-married. But this symbology had none of the weight of those things but more a self focus on points and places in life that I have personally failed.
This generally leads to us failing, hurting others and ultimately ourselves.
What we do with these failings decides – if, when and how we move on in our lives.
You have to learn to forgive yourself.
This was a really difficult story to write and express. I believe that we are being refined and molded though life by a higher power, but the expression of this dream was something I wanted to share no matter your religious point of view.
Four takeaways –
- Throughout our lives we are a work in progress.
- You will have failures and disappointments
- You can decide your attitude towards the problem or challenge.
- It can be positive or negative.
Be at peace that with the right attitude and view on life, every step back is actually a step towards a better refined you. (this does not include eating donuts or sculpturing bellies)
Keep knocking of the sharp edges and polishing the smooth ones,
P.S. I found this little daily motivation and help can be a useful reminder.
