“Never close your lips to those to whom you have opened your heart.”
We try to maintain control of our lives. Or the illusion of control. In an effort to cultivate and protect ourselves, to maintain control, we sometimes make choices that are not to our benefit or to the benefit of those around us. That’s when we stop growing. Like a fish in a pond. The fish will only grow to the size the pond can accommodate.
What stops us from wanting to grow?
Fear does this.
People protect their fears in the cleverest of ways…
“Hey, look over there!” – The Distraction
“Me? What about you?” – The Switcheroo
“What problem?” – The Denial
But it really boils down to this;
Sometimes we’re asked to step up to the plate. Asked to be a part of something bigger than just oneself.
When that question arrives, what will you do?
It’s your day. Go get it.
