The Elephant in the Room

I am learning something new. I am learning to acknowledge the elephant in the room. This has not been an easy process, I much prefer to ignore it, bury my head in the sand, and live an easy existence. I would much prefer to say, 'its not my problem, ' and  turn my back, so as to not see the obvious.
And yet, these days, the elephant in the room has been slamming me in the gut, and so, I am learning to look at it, assess the damage and look for a solution.
It ain't easy.
And in the discomfort of the moment, I am learning to see things with new eyes. I am learning to try and try again. I am learning that I need to replace resentment with understanding, frustration with patience, and despair with hope.
And so, I pray that the learning continues as I have a face to face meeting....with the elephant in the room.
