Open the door

I had a meltdown with a friend today about how I never seem to get the messages God sends me. I ask and ask and I know an answer is being provided, but I miss it or misinterpret it, or possibly ignore it completely. I was wishing the messages could be delivered directly and without confusion.

I had a riding lesson this evening, I was to ride a school horse so that I can work on my own riding and get my confidence back, and not worry about what the horse is doing. Since it was my first school horse lesson I got there a bit early because I had no idea what to do, where to go, or what horse I would be riding.

I was sitting in the aisle texting the same friend my lesson is late, am I here on the right day? What if she forgot me? What if someone else has a lesson instead, should I just go home? How long do I wait? 

Then a lady came out of the arena and walked up to me and said Are you Melissa? and I said yes. She told me I was wanted in the arena.

So, the instructor and the horse were waiting in the arena for me. Literally all I had to do was open the door and what I was looking for was right there.

How many times has this happened in my life? I said to my friend -that’s my life in a nutshell right now. What I want is right there, I just miss the message and forget to open the damn door.

The lesson was awesome by the way. I left feeling so much happier in my soul.
