Good golly. This week the universe has smacked me upside the head and been quite bossy. I mean seriously, now, I kind of half put a question out into the cosmos, asking what to do about a couple of situations, and KABAAAAM! The answer was there. And the universal finger was pointed at me.
Now somehow I knew this was going to be the answer. And deep down, I am ok with that. I've fallen into a couple of negative patterns of thinking which even the fabulous neural retraining program hasn't yet touched. And I think they are causing me a heap load of discomfort.
So someone asked me to ask myself, what am I afraid of? Easy peasy, right?
Now for sure some of these fears are long shots. I don't stress out about potential lion bites every day of the week. Clearly though, fear is a major part of the human condition, and I am no exception. But fear is nearly always a state of anticipating something that hasn't even happened. Living in a hypothetical future. Not being present. And fear can become a rut or a pattern we fall into and have trouble getting out of. And the first step in getting out of a rut is being aware that you are in one. :)
With that in mind, I will march out into the world today, determined to find a new groove. And perhaps tame a lion or two along the way.
