When Opportunity Comes A-knockin'
The other thing that I do is run. I run as far and as fast in the oppposite direction as my endlessly fabulous shoes will take me. I'm not entirely sure why I do this but it obviously doen't tend to end well and it certainly doesn't leave me rolling in the spoils brought to me by a new opportunity. I choose the safe path and continue plodding along, not earning more, not seeing anything new and not allowing myself to taste the difference that change brings.
I generally go with the latter.
The rub is that I like to think of my self as somehwat brave and more adventurous than the average bear so why the fear of change? Change has always been good to me, its taken me to wonderful places, introduced me to remarkable people, given me countless good things and rarely brought disappointment that I hadn't already seen on the horizon. So perhaps i'm not actually afraid of change. Perhaps its not that I feel that I don't deserve a break, because, believe me, I do. Maybe i'm just lazy. It is easier not to change. And instead to live a stagnant season, turning a blind eye to the things that are making your existence less than ideal and to choke on the cloud of dust that opportunity leaves as it thunders by you again.
So this is me. Grabbing the proverbial bull by his sizeable horns.
Watch this space.
