Sometimes you find that you already have what you need…
Well I pulled another Diana. Sometimes I wonder where my head’s at.
For weeks I’ve been driving around without windshield washer fluid. I know, I know, it’s not the smartest thing to do. In fact the other morning I barely saw the man who ran across 17th Avenue as I was driving to work with the sun in my eyes.
So finally on Thursday, I stopped in at the gas station to buy some windshield washer. I popped the hood, filled up on the fluid and opened the trunk to store the rest. And what to my chagrin did I see? A half jug of windshield washer fluid already neatly stored in the right-hand corner of my trunk.
Quite the metaphor for everyday life too. Sometimes we put off doing something because we don’t feel qualified, or we can’t do it because we’ve never done it before, or we don’t have what it takes to do the job.
But often, the truth is if we just start doing it, learning as we go, we come to discover that we’ve had what we needed all along.
