Peg“The problem with pounding a square peg into a round hole is not that the hammering is hard work. It’s that you’re destroying the peg.” ~ Paul Collins. Have you ever tried to fit into an area where, in the pit of your stomach, you knew you did not belong? I know I have. Like many others, I grew up listening to, reading, and watching “fairy tales” that had “happy endings,” that defined what the world around us considered a happy ending. Often those happy endings had little to do with reality, but in my quest to find happiness I often chased rainbows that faded or imploded. I began to realize that I was created for a purpose and that I was destroying my peg. I don’t have to force myself to fit in. I am becoming the best me that I can be. The once jagged edges of my peg are being restored to their original shape – a shape that fits me perfectly. It’s not forced. It’s natural. And therein lies my joy.
