Elephant in the Room
Have you heard the term 'there is an elephant in the room'? It means there is something going on or not going on that everyone involved either refuses to see or can't see, comes to the same thing. The elephant takes the proportions of a complete roadblock to anything else beyond it.
I'm reminded by this card the book I'm reading this week has given me two new exciting interesting valuable tools for cutting down my own elephant. I can see the elephant, I've been prying at it for a year. It is no longer black blocking out the sun... but it's still too big to kick to the curb. I have great hopes for a leap forward this month.
"To be angry or fearful is one thing. To let it grab you by the tail and swing you around is another." ~ Katherine Paterson 1932-
