I need

September 4th, 2016

I don’t want to focus on what I don’t have.

 

If I focus on everything I don’t have, eventually I’ll remember that something I don’t have is something I actually need.

 

If I don’t have something I need, I need to get it. What if I don’t have a plan to get it? What if I don’t know how to get it? What if getting it is beyond my means?

 

I have a lot of things I need to fix. I don’t know where to start. It’s too much. I can’t do it.

 

I am not in control of my life. My destiny belongs to the wind and the tides. I am a piece of debris left on the open ground, vulnerable to pickup by strong gusts, tornadoes, streams, creeks and the like. I do not control how long I float or how long I fly.

 

That Elton John song “Candle In The Wind” about Marilyn Monroe? At least the candle had a base holding it down, I assume. Even if the wind put the flame out it didn’t get knocked over because of inclement weather.
