You might know more than I do.
Over ten years ago, I started writing a mystery series called The Rona Shively Stories. Ten books later, I am still trying to figure out this character. In the most recent book, we see Rona trying to figure out why she still bothers. Often, we ask ourselves this same question. Why do I still bother when it seems like I’m making absolutely no progress? My answer is always, because I am curious as to what will happen next? Could tomorrow bring the next big victory? Or the next big defeat? I’ll never know if I give up now.
Sometimes, however, we just need to step away from it all and take inventory. Sometimes, we cannot continue traveling down the same road that we’ve been on for most of our journey. Sometimes, we absolutely must stop doing what we’ve been doing so we can figure out whether or not we are getting the desired results. Rona does this. And though we may not understand why at the time, it makes sense to her. That’s all that matters. When and if she’s ready, she’ll come back around. When and if she’s ready, she’ll explain it all. That’s real life. That’s the real story.
Until next time…God bless.
