that’s not what I wanted

Sometimes life has a way of leading you down a different road than the one you thought you were traveling.
Maybe it takes twists and turns you follow because you are avoiding something else…maybe it just is.
The harder you try, the more amplified any obstacle will become.
Recently, I’ve been working so hard at writing, trying to get power and Internet in my off grid situation and building things to make my life a little more comfortable.
The result…I’ve aggravated a repetitive strain injury in my carpal tunnel (and all at a time my Ontario Health coverage needs renewing, not to mention the million things I am trying to get done).
It’s not what I wanted but I can learn to adjust. It will help me grow and become more than the sum total of everything I currently am.
I can recored my writing with voice, I can research and read, I can develop, I can use my left hand, I can exercise, I can learn to contribute in other ways. If I can’t play the guitar, I can practice singing or song writing.
I can also learn to communicate better with the people on my off grid community.
There are always alternatives. It may not be what you wanted but…
When life deals you lemons, make lemonade!
