Adaptation

My children often marvel at my handling hot kitchen ware with bare hands. It has come with years of regularly cooking hot meals. I often get away with not being burnt as the contact is for very brief periods. 

Adverse situations may be survivable if only for short periods but not sustainable in the long run. Toxic relationships are similar. 

Victims of abuse are thought to remain in toxic relationships for many reasons: guilt, shame of failed relationship, fear of financial loss or loss of false security, fear of adverse consequences including death and even fear of the unfamiliar! 

The story is told of a toad in a pond with the temperature gradually increased. It kept adjusting and seemingly coping till the temperature was not sustainable to its viability. Adapting to subtle worsening  atmosphere and continuing to adapt to an unfavourable environment, resulted in the toads ultimate death! 

The warning signs are often there, the painful things so hard to bear and hazard lights clear to the sight. Reasons abound to resist change, be it culture or fear of change. Staying in pain for way too long may end in worse than what was feared!

 Resustance to, or fear of making a change may end in irreversible disaster! 

Make the change for healthier living! If need be get help.

Health tip:                                       Challenges should not be avoided, they help develop stronger muscles- mentally, emotionally and spiritually, like weights in a gym. Challenges should however be tolerated within healthy limits.

It looked like it would be the perfect dream, starting life with acres of green pasture, evening walks on the farm inhaling fresh clean air! The scenes started to change like a movie being fast forwarded and precious moments seemed uncaptured till gone, not to return. I started learning to cherish life, the greatest gift above all things! I needed more, so I sought the source and got to know it came from Love and with it was always freedom! The rapidly changing scenes, with years speeding by, have been stormy and still, bright and grey, with highs and low! I have found meaningful living is not determined by circumstances but rather by what goes on within. The juice in the heart powers the body, its activities and interactions. Love gives the juice, love gives life, freedom expresses life. I remain passionate about a journey with life, love and liberty! #LoveLifeLiberty
