Occasionally, life blows us up against a fence. We feel stuck, unable to move forward and unwilling to to go back. To push through the barrier, we risk being torn apart by the pressures we are up against. We may not be as supple as we once were. Both brain and body are a bit more rigid, and we may feel there is no chance of coming through unscathed. If we can't find a way to easily wriggle free, we're apt to just stay put hoping that, if we're lucky, someone will come along and pluck us from our predicament.
But, that's not likely to happen.
The winds are gonna keep blowing. The ground is gonna freeze. And, baby it's cold and lonely out there, stuck in the fence. Eventually, we'll crumble having never gotten past it. Unless...
We could climb. As the winds of change blow, we could inch determinedly toward our dream of seeing the other side. We could use the barrier as a ladder to reach the next level, until - whosh! - we are whisked right into the future.
Because, in case you didn't know it, the only fence keeping you out is the one in your own mind.
