Mind the gap

WordPress Discover Challenge: Mind the Gap


After long hours of driving on a very hot summer’s day and getting lost on the way, I was less than charmed when I saw this gap in the road. The roadworks were obviously undertaken to facilitate the flow of water over the raised road after a heavy thunderstorm. To me, already out of sorts after my misadventures, it presented an overwhelming mental obstacle. For a moment there my overwrought mind could actually visualise my car disappearing into that trench. I had to reach very deep down to find the inner strength to cross the gap, which after all turned out to be no problem at all; even on this very narrow road I easily navigated the road and soon thereafter reached my destination. Sometimes, we just need to remind ourselves that obstacles are very seldom insurmountable. It just takes a little courage and a calm approach to reach a goal.

Your problem is to bridge the gap which exists between where you are now and the goal you intend to reach. Earl Nightingale.

  1. Oeps …

  2. Dis nie altyd maklik om die gaping te vat nie.

  3. Waar woorde, Hester. Maar dit bly ń plek wat ons nie altyd wil kom nie, die area voor ons die ‘gap’ oorsteek. Ek hou van roetine, so om my aan die beweeg te kry, vat emosionele oortuiging. Ek bly liewer dièkant… en mis dan uit.

  4. Oi! Literally! Failing to see that and driving over on my normal speed would have me see my ‘gat’ just a little.
