There’s a Hole Down that Road 🌑

I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road. I don’t see the hole. I fall in the hole. It’s very deep, and at the bottom, where I lay broken, it’s cold and dark. I can’t get out.

I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road. I see the hole as I am walking down the road. I fall in the hole. It’s familiar and strangely cozy. I can’t get out.

I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road. I see the hole as I am walking down the road. I fall in the hole. I don’t like the hole anymore. I want to get out.

I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road. I see the hole as I am walking down the road. I dread falling in the hole. I fall in the hole. But I look up and decide to get out.

I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road. I see the hole as I walk down the road. I say to myself, “I will not fall in the hole again.” I fall in the hole again. I start climbing out.

I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road. I see the hole as I walk down the road. I try not to fall down the hole. But I fall in the hole again. I get back out straight away.

I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road. I see the hole as I walk down the road. My foot catches the edge and I fall in the hole. But I don’t hit the bottom. I cling to the edge and climb out of the hole.

I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road. I see the hole and step over it. I don’t fall in the hole this time.

I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road. I see the hole and step over it. But I trip. I fall in the hole. I climb out faster than before.

I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road. But I’m not on that road. I’ve walked down a different road.🙌🏻🍃🌻

May our mistakes help us become wiser & pick ourselves up faster.❤️  It may take us a thousand times to really understand something.  But it’s those moments of messing up that can lead us onto that better path.✨

My hole was abuse.  I always fell,  it was my own family.  I finally walked down a different road, which led to being blessed with my own family. The most loving family you can imagine.  And the family I had been praying my whole life for.💛

  1. There are paths in life that we choose and we learn from those mistakes and choose better paths the next time around and it’s those things that makes us stronger and makes us the people we are today. God has plans for us and if the road where going down is the wrong path he always finds a way to get us back on the right path 🙂
