Stop Waiting For The Magic Button And Take Action
Some days I wake up to a cloud hanging over me. On days like these, it’s easy to put on blinders and forget about everything that’s going on. I refuse to see anyone because I’m not ready to deal with the world. I pull the covers over my head and secretly wish my troubles away.
I hope that if I wish hard enough, a beam of sunlight would pierce through the hazy gray and bring on a bright sunny sky. But life as we know it does not turn out that way. Despite staying in bed all day, eventually I have to get up and deal with what is bothering me.
There are times I whined and complained because I had refused to take responsibility. I was oblivious to the fact that I had the power to create. I don’t have to wait for solutions to fall out of the sky and into my lap.
I forgot I have the ability to change what I was unhappy over. It is up to me to create what does not yet exist but should and take back control of my life.
Too often, we undermine our ability to adapt. To adapt does not mean to throw in the towel. It means accepting the need for change, unlearning, and relearning. To adapt requires that we view life from a different lens.
