Inconsistency – Harvest 2016 Reflections & Explorers Log

Harvest Months 2015 Reflections & Explorers Log

Hi y’all! I’m treating myself and my friends to monthly reflections, this year. These are meant to help me keep track and make sense of things. I am one of those creative types that flourish in clutter and chaos. I’m also the first to admit that my way is no way to keep any sort of order.

Our Harvest Reflection is courtesy of Augusta Canal.
"One cannot live without inconsistency." - Carl Jung







Consistency isn't my thing, folks. But, that doesn't stop me from attempting to make it my thing. It's not that I don't have any consistency. I just don't have mastery over it. If we liken consistency to the horses we ride through life, mine is a wild donkey.

 

I'm not cut out for the wagon train. I'm a happy, content person running along through the fields with my wild donkey, stopping to smell the flowers. And, try as I might to join in, I just get trampled by the wagon train that stretches in a line as long as the equator. It seems like everybody else and their team of Clydesdales all heading the same way, doing the same thing, they have this mastery over what people want and how to give it to them.... I am a master of nothing and if I'm being brutally honest, I don't know much either.

 

So, for 2016, I'm going to focus on letting go of this fear that my inconsistency will fail me.... I mean, we're usually a decade behind everyone else, but this wild donkey has carried me this far.. I don't qualify for any trophies, but that's just one less thing to carry.
