Author Journal: Overcoming Obstacles

Shattered Tree

It happens to us all. We put our oars into the waters of life with blithe hope. Sometimes we find a gentle current and sometimes rapids. Either way, we stay afloat – because we must – until a tree falls across our river.

This obstacle blocks progress and creates a pile-up. Even if we rant at the tree to the point of exhaustion it won’t budge, and we only get hurt when we try to shift it.  There’s only one solution to avoid a collision.

When a tree falls across a river the water doesn’t stop coming. It spreads out until it finds a new course around the tree.

We must do the same.

  1. Thank you for the Overcoming Obstacles post, Janalyn. I needed this today.
    I am prone to ranting rather than waiting for the new course around the tree.
    Truly meaningful and beautiful writing.
    Best wishes,

  2. I appreciate your letting me know, Holly. This post seems to have struck a nerve for people. Not everyone commented, but it’s been popular. Thanks for the compliment on my writing.
