Learn to think for yourself again. So much time in our younger years was spent focusing on learning from teachers and parents who had developed their own thoughts to impart on us. Although most of them had good intentions, not all those we learned from enabled an environment for us to be functional thinkers that could find our own ways and conclusions. Be the change you seek and try to notice when you step in to a certain belief pattern.
I don’t like Mexican food so I don’t eat it. Look at this statement and think about it. When was the last time you had Mexican food, who prepared it, what was the meal, where was it at? All of those questions asked back to yourself can help you realize that, hey, maybe I didn’t like it that time, but maybe this time is different.
I’ve come to believe that it’s worth trying something in a new situation every time the opportunity presents itself. If you still don’t like it…No Worries! Give things a shot. Over and over. If it’s in your head, just jump on in.
This life shouldn’t be about the things we avoid, it should be about the experiences we make, and goals we shoot for. Let’s discover more about ourselves and make stories to tell.
