I recently read the book: “Who Moved My Cheese”
I found myself – perhaps not so ironically – moved by this book.
It’s about change and how people react to it differently based on their general demeanor; also about how said demeanor determines how painfully/lessly they react to this change.
It’s about an hour’s read so pick it up, you won’t regret doing so.
The most important question that book asks is: “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”
It BLEW MY MIND because so often, I have the knowledge that a change must be made and the resources to make it happen but am too. . . apprehensive and/or stuck in my ways – notice how I avoided the word “afraid” or any of it’s connotational (I don’t know if that’s a word, I basically mean something similar in connotation) counterparts . . .maybe that’s something else I should change – to make the actual change happen.
Well I’ve been taking on some new adventures like talking to random people I find myself sitting next to; trying foods I’ve only seen written and have no idea how to pronounce and so on.
See, I’m well aware that these aren’t the kind of small steps that land one on the moon but they are a “giant leap” for this man’s kind – shout out to Neil Armstrong. LOL!!! – so calm your judgements down a bit!!
I started reading a blog which is about a certain lady (along with some of her followers)’s sexual endeavors. Now, I too have had sexual experiences but have never written about them, though I have secretly always wanted to.
So, I asked myself: “What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” – to which the answer was (having seen the standard): “SUBMIT SOME AWESOMELY-WRITTEN-SEX-ON-A-PAGE, NYIIIKKAAA!!!!! *Stinkmeaner voice*”
This awesomely-written-sex-on-a-page can be found on her blog at: polymisfit.wordpress.com
So, I’ll be doing that in less than a week: those who know me know how pedantic I am when it comes to things I publish so needless to say, I want my piece/s to be perfect.
Standby for results, until then:
May the light in all things be with you.
