Steps On Your Journey

Heres my adaptation of “There’s A Hole In My Sidewalk: Autobiography In Five Short Chapters” By Portia Nelson.
 
Step 1: 
I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the pavement. I fall in. I am lost. I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. It takes forever to find a way out.
Step 2: 
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the pavement. I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in again. I can’t believe I am in this same place. But it isn’t my fault. It still takes a long time to get out.
Step 3: 
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the pavement. I see it is there. I fall in…it’s a habit…but my eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.
Step 4: 
I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the pavement. I walk around it.
Stage 5: 
I walk down a different street.
