Autobiography in Five Short Chapters, By: Portia Nelson

I

I walk down the street.

There's a deep hole in the sidewalk

I fall in.

I am lost... I am helpless.

It isn't my fault.

It takes me forever to find a way out.

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 the same place

but, it isn't my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.

III

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I see it is there.

I still fall in...it's a habit.

My eyes are open.

I know where I am.

It is my fault.

I get out immediately.

IV

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.

V

I walk down another street.

 

I love the raw honesty of this poem. Wouldn't it be grand if we could all jump immediately to "chapter 5" and " walk down another street"? Are you struggling to make change on your current path? Do you feel it is time to walk down a new path? You are the reason I created Embrace Wellness. I'm here to guide you toward a new path. Let's start the journey, let's begin...
