Screech Owl: Courageous Individual

This is my third of six Owl-themed spreads.

Complacency is a spirit-killer. Doing nothing is so de-motivating but it becomes a habit that's hard to break. I know this from personal experience. Some people call it a "comfortable rut" and it's hard to crawl out of.

I have an area in my life where I know I could really use some more courage. I have done lots of therapy (formal) and self-therapy to get to a place where I can face this lack of bravery. In the past I've given up too easily and I've always regretted it. Sometimes finding courage is a scary thing, but I think it's always worth the effort.

This is food for thought. Its easy to just let things go rather than face the lion. Or is it? For me it depends. Is "it" really worth fighting for? As I get older, I find that for some things I could care less, others I am ready to fight.

This will be a nice blog! I just discovered it. I had no idea you had this one.

I find that as I get older, some thing have gotten easier. Others are more challenging. You are right when you say that complacency is a spirit killer. I think we get into a rut that's hard to come out of.

Hi Dianna :) I have those decisions too, something are NOT worth fighting for or over. But if I feel like I'll hold resentment or I have really strong emotions of oppression or an injustice, I find a way to "fight".

Hi Martha :)) I don't really advertise this blog, only because I'm not too open about my spirituality - that's just a habit I've developed over the years with intolerance but I'm glad you found it! :) I was actually in a comfortable but miserable rut for way too many years, and it was HARD to get out of it. It kills every motivation you have, almost like crawling out of an endless hole at times!
