1. Upside down
For the past three months, I’ve been facing a wall in a topsy-turvy state. Sitting criss-crossed with the map of my life in hand, I’ve just been staring, blinking once or twice, at this wall that has disrupted my universe. At first, it was quite small, so I smoothly hid it under a rug, brushing away its footsteps. Yet, over time, its legs became far too big to hide under a rug, in a closet, or in a box. I don’t even think an Inivisibily Cloak will work. It keeps getting bigger and bigger, louder and louder, knocking things down and waking other people up with its tantrums. It keeps getting closer and closer, dominating my universe, stretching its arms around me, attempting to pressure me into acknowledging its precence. Well, I have. I practically even think about this wall while sleeping. But now, I’m done staring at it. You know why? Because this wall isn’t evil- its a massive opportunity, one I’ve worked and craved for, for years. I avoided it because I’ve had second thoughts about shaking its hand and taking its offer. Why? Because I’ve decided that its an even better opportunity to get my saw of a fingertip and draw a door out of the wall, walking through it, and painting a new sky. Most people will think I’m mad, but I think my navigator of a heart knows best.
