Trying to get to Chapter 5

I'm borrowing this from Jacque. And I have determined that learning to move from chapters 1 through 4 to chapter 5 is painful.

Autobiography in 5 Simple Chapters


By Portia Nelson


Chapter One

I walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I fall in.

I am lost .... I am helpless.

It isn't my fault.

It takes forever to find a way out.



Chapter Two

I walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I pretend that I don't see it.

I fall in again.

I can't believe I am in this same place.

But, it isn't my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.



Chapter Three

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 ... but, my eyes are open.

I know where I am.

It is my fault.

I get out immediately.


Chapter Four

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.



Chapter Five

I walk down another street.

I hear that. It's what I am struggling to do. Right. Now.
