I fell !

Here’s me working at my desk, listening to some really awesome music- music that makes me feel so good… and the phone rings. It is down the passage and in the living room.

I got up, running to get to the phone before the person on the other end decides I’m not here… I was wearing socks. The whole passage is tiled.

socks and tiles- Dont go!Yip! I fell! “Fuck” was the first word out of my mouth… (Yeah, I shocked myself too!)

Yes. I’m ok. (For those of you concerned with any broken bones I might have lol)

The phone was still ringing… I sort of crawled up and was about to answer and it went dead. Oh well.

I went to my favorite couch, laid down waiting for the stinging in my hand and foot to stop… resisting the hot tears that were forming in my eyes.

I couldn’t. I was crying. Not because I was hurt really bad physically… Maybe it was the shock of it all?!

Then I was thinking, ok, now get up and get back to what you were doing… why are you just laying here?

Here we go...I realized its so so true- that people will take as long as you give them to get up and move on- You will take as long as you give yourself to get up once you’ve fallen.

I have been feeling like I’ve “fallen” for the past few days… Like I’m at the bottom of a well and it’s difficult to see the light at the top even though I know with total certainty that there is light there…
And I guess the “power greater than me” decided to remind me that I will take as long as I give myself to get up, move and get what I want.

Thank you to whom ever called.

Live your dreams, not just your life!
