the new extension is visible.
On the outside you can already see how the outcome will be.
It looked even better then we expected!
It still needed a ceiling, but you could already imagine how that would be
If you are in this fase of transformation,
you can imagine how the end result will be,
you are determined,'
see some results and can imagine the rest.
It makes you feel happy and you feel you can already celebrate :-)
It is as with these storks: a happy family.
Three young storks.
Amazing to see and to hear them.
When we watch,
we realized that it is not an easy job to be parents of 3 young storks!
They seemed pretty big already,
however they were not ready to take care of them selves!
The parents flew on and of to feed them
and had to walk many miles going over fields
to find enough food to fill the empty stomachs of there offspring.
Did they realise how much it would take
to do this?
How often do we start something new
because we think it will be amazing,
but 'forget' that it takes responsibility,
time, patience and determination?
Do parents know what it takes to raise a child
when they decide to have children?
Someone said to me one day:
'If I knew what it takes I would not have done it.'
'You made that decision and now you can not go back,
you have to take responsibility for that decision!'
With the renovation it looks like the 'hard part' is over.
When you are in this fase
you expect some challenges...
and you know you can take them.
However, there will be other obstacles as well.
Some that ask you go take a leap of faith.
Do you want to deal with what is deep inside,
do you have the courage to go 'through the black hole'....
not knowing there will be 'light'....
Are you prepared to take the responsibility,
time, patience that it needs...
We had to break away some old walls in the house,
and to close the ceiling.
On the outside there is not a lot of change anymore,
but inside there is a lot happening.
I was confronted with old patterns, people from the past
and realised that I can't and don't have to safe people:
they can do it themselves AND...
that I realise that I 'use it as an 'excuse' not to deal with myself….
I also realised that I am more courageous
and powerful then I think and...
that I should read Marianne Williamson's poem again….
in the 'I' form...
