If It Doesn't Work, Try Something Different

Are you like me, where sometimes I go through my days and week wondering why I'm not getting anywhere?  I'm not saying that happens all the time, but there are periods that it does.  Maybe to you, it just seems like you're beating your head against a brick wall.  Maybe you feel that everyday is just more of the same and what's the use?

I remember hearing a story about the man that walks down the street and falls in the hole.  He then gets back out and goes walking down the same street and once again falls in the hole.  He continues this day after day until one day the man walks down the street and walks around the hole.

As humans we are all like this in many ways.  We tend to walk down the street and fall in the same hole.  It may be different holes, but instead of walking around the hole, we drop right into it.  However, if we can just realize that walking around the hole saves us a lot of headaches and bruises, we'd get further in life.


I also acknowledge that sometimes we need to fall into the hole many times because there are many parts of the hole that we need to see before we are ready to move on in life.  Sometimes we need to get the bruises so we'll see the better side of what exists in life.  Sometimes there are things we need to learn by falling in the hole that we can't even begin to fathom at this moment.

Unfortunately, I've had to learn many times over that if it doesn't work, try something different.  If falling into the hole in the road doesn't serve me, then maybe I may want to consider walking around the hole.  It is truly up to us what choices we make, but if it doesn't work, try something different.
