Monochrome Monday – Searching for Obi-Wan

Do you ever feel sometimes that you are wandering in the desert looking for that certain something or someone? I had a few things occur recently that made me feel like I had been bumped from the path that was doing well and into the wilderness lost and confused searching for answers.  Sometimes we think we have our stuff together when something or someone (us included) pokes that vulnerable hole where there is a missing scale and reminds us that maybe we aren’t as “together” as we thought; that there is still strengthening needing to be done.

When that happens you can sit down and mope feeling defeated, you can plod on through your own desert until you hopefully find you way, or you can ask for help.  Right now I’m having a “Help me, Obi-Wan..” stretch.  A bit down but not out.

(A tip of the Tatooine hat to my friend, Chris, over on MilfordStreet.  By the way, catch the other movie reference anyone?)

        Hopefully the sum is not greater than the individual pieces

    Thank you for the shout out Teri. We all have days where we need Obi-Wan…I hope you find the answers you seek.

      I am returning the shout out favor but did you get the other movie reference? I hope I get the answers soon although sometimes when we get the answers we wish we hadn’t asked 😉

        Wandering in the desert…all I get isThe Ten Commandments. Although a part of me wonders if over the horizon is the sea with the head of the Statue of Liberty next to it – lol

        Ok that was cool but not the right movie. I reveal the right movie in the color version of this post.

        Now I have something to look forward to. 🙂

      Thanks, Cindi. It is going to be, I’m afraid, and on going process. See new post for the reference 😉
