Health and safety….

forget safety

The illusion that…..

a comfort zone we create is safe
the sky won’t fall in if we do ‘so and so’
a plan is not viable
the person you share your latest idea with will laugh
someone else knows what is good for you
there is safety in staying put
you can’t do it
someone else’s experience will be yours
it isn’t meant to be
you are not worthy…

Illusion is born from fear
Fear stunts growth…

Change is healthy.

    Sometime life forces us out of our comfort zone and we are faced with a choice: we can recoil or we can embrace the good that comes with this change in life.

    I hope that everything is going okay for you, Jane. Not too many bumps in your path.

    Many Blessings ~ Maxi

      Yes Maxi, sometimes life bumps us out of our comfort zone, but it’s the times when we are jogging along yet desire something not yet here in our lives. It’s the small changes we need to make to bring this about…they are the ones that are sometimes the trickiest I think. Much love and hugs back to you, Jane xx

    I love this, Jane. What you have to decide is how you want your life to be. If your forever ended tomorrow, would this be how you’d want to have spent it? The simple truth is, nothing is guaranteed. We can choose to be afraid or we can choose to be alive. ~ Love you, Me

    Having courage means taking the leap and knowing that no matter where you land, you’ll be just fine.
    Have a glorious day!

    Oh my lovely “back to bloging”friend! How I have missed these posts of yours!

    This one couldnt have come at a better time for me on my 11th anniversary of being without alcohol. ! I have been siting today and relecting on how much I needed to change things in order to begin recovery, and yet here I am again fearing all the changes that are challenging me now like accepting trips in wheelchairs now and again, investing in a mobility scooter… All these things are so scary and yet life will be better if I have the courage to do it! – note to self – recite the serenity prayer which includes the line “courage to change the things I can” !!

    Thank you and thank Rumi for the strong reminder.

    When the student is ready the teacher will appear! And here tou are šŸ™‚

    Lots of love and e en more hugs

      Christine, your comment leaves me humbled. Congratulations on 11 years of non-alcoholic peace and for bearing MS so bravely and with such humour. Here’s to us leaping together towards whatever comes next AND to funky teapot hunting – biggest hug my lovely friend xxx

    I so agree. If we try and live within our comfort zone, it seems to get smaller with each passing year. In that context, some are born brave, but some have bravery thrust upon them. You cannot avoid change, so you might as well embrace it

      Yes Peter, it was a comment that my friend Jeannie, over at ‘1smiles’ blog made this morning about stepping towards love taking courage that set my train of thought off today…how much do we hold onto instead of diving off that board? Thanks for stopping by xx
