Before you are get there
Before you get there:
- the path will wind up that hill, through the valley and around the corner. The corner will look like the last several thousand corners you have past and will be followed by craggy mountain peaks or a pit the size of a craggy mountain peaks.
- your computer will loose all your writing, the dog will eat your homework, the baby will throw up on your while blouse and that dream, the one where you turn up in public butt naked, will come true.
- it will rain... and rain and rain and rain and rain and... you get the picture.
-Ten people will tell you to give up, seven will mean it, two will be your closest friends, and the last one could care less if you make it or not, but since he is going no where, why should he be happy that you want to?
-you'll query the book 3987276987 times more than you planned to. You'll pitch the dream, go for the job interview, take that next step, reach out, speak up and you'll walk through the door. None of it will be successful.
-Monday will be a bitch. Tuesday will be her best friend. Wednesday will side with the first two days, Thursday will follow cause now there is an official trend, your week sucks and Friday? Well Friday will do what it wants, cause Friday can.
-You'll bang your head against your desk, the wall and other people's ignorance. If your lucky that last one won't knock you out.
-You'll quit. Twenty times. Twenty times twenty times. Per day.
-You'll loose you will power, your imagination, your sense of fun, your sense of reality, your best mate and your mind. These are the signs that you are really close. Especially that last one. REALLY REALLY close.
And here's the kicker. Just when you think you cannot go another step, when the road looks like continues past the horizon and on into forever, the day you let it all go and just breath... finally...
....you will be there.
What about you? What happened to you before you were there? Or are you like me and still getting there?
