The Daily 300
I remember my mom dragging me into a building that might as well have been hell itself, as far as I was concerned. It was just pre-school, however. I screamed all the way to my seat; I didn’t want to be away from her, nor did I want anything to do with the woman who tried to blissfully persuade me to shut up and get happy. My fear overwhelmed my ability to understand that I was going to be alright in the changed situation.
Fear of the unknown is powerful and can render us helpless. Maybe you just need to get a new hairdresser or switch banks; you could need to end a relationship or an addiction. No matter what it is, you have the power to change it…if you resolve to and you move into faith that things will be okay.
Now, back to the pre-school story. It wasn’t long (minutes after my mom left) that I realized my situation wasn’t so bad. The music was continuous; the toys were abundant; and interacting with other children was way better than playing with my doll all day. Change. I embraced it. Used it. Loved it.
New situations, people, and events always come knocking at your door. How do you react to them? Do you slam the door; cower in the corner; run? How about opening yourself up to change? Make a pact with yourself right now. Do it while you are thinking about it. Pick one thing that you know you need to change in order to live a better life. I don’t care what it is; pick something. Now, what needs to happen in order for change to be a reality? Let me know how you do. Questions and comments are always welcome here. Be well-be beautiful.
