I'd say 7. There are a few things in my life that I need to make changes in and tonight I made that decision. Tomorrow, I start making a list!!
Had a great night tonight with co-workers at a going away party for another co-worker who will be leaving Wednesday. I work with some fun people! But, came home to find my AC has gone caput!! UGH!! Not good! Hope everyone has had a great Saturday and will have a terrific Sunday!!
I know myself. I don't do change well. It is hard to get better at accepting change. I rate quite low, probably a 3.
I am not sure what thing to try and become less fearful of change. That will take more thought.
I'd give myself a 6.5. I am not afraid of change and welcome it....sometimes slow to change. Old habits can be hard to break. I will take responsibility for changing my bad habit of snacking....at least 3days this week.
Hmm. Well, the thing is, I have recently realized that I have two ratings regarding change. If it is change that I choose, such as deciding to move to another province, or change jobs etc, then I am stressed, but have tons of courage to do it. When it is an enforced change, like my boss decides to move our location, or a favourite shop closes, well... that just frustrates me. So I am really not sure how to rate this.
I HAVE been doing something that raises my rating... I let stuff go more easily. That's what happens when you have stressed yourself to illness and depression. If I am depressed, then I honestly don't care. And if I am not depressed, then I consciously think "not worth the stress" and let it go. Win win?
I suppose it depends what I'm doing! Generally I'd say 5 or 6, but when it comes to making phone calls or applying for a job or an interview or something serious like that then it's more like a 2 haha. However, I've found that doing the things that you fear more frequently make them much easier, so maybe I'm at a 3 now :3
Today's challenge is a wake-up call for me. I think my rating is a 3 now, but when I was younger it was an 8-9. When I was 28, I moved from one coast to the other just because I wanted a change of scenery. Now I am afraid to go back to school to change careers. How sad is that? Okay, it's time to raise the rating back up. Next day off I will start researching schools to apply to. Already put it on my calendar. Have a great weekend, all!
well I do have courage when it comes to personal improvements like losing weight and eating right. My fear (lack of courage) comes from switching jobs. I have been working for 32 years with the same person at 2 different firms (12 with one and 20 with the current one). Now with the economy I am afraid to make a change and not have security. The first step is to make a resume something I have never done for myself. It is so easy to do something for others ad yet I find it difficult to do for myself! So I would rate myself right in the middle with a 5.
I have had a great vacation full of relaxation. We don't have a signed contract but I think we have a buyer for my mother in law's apt. Please send positive energy that it happens so we can close that chapter.
While I have been on vacation my ipad wasn't allowing me to reply or smile so although I visited and read some posts I wasn't able to comment. Sorry everyone b
I think it's a 6. It also depends for what change I need the courage...

Living in the “not now” is a chief cause of unhappiness. In the English language, the word “present” has three distinct meanings:
“here”, “now” and “a gift”. The more present you are in each moment, the more happiness you will find. Happiness is where you are.
Challenge ~ I am really not sure where I fall on this 1-1- scale...I do embrace change-most of the time,
but there are times where I am SO not willing....Hmmmm!
I guess I am one of those in the middle folks.
A lot of change is forced & we all have to adapt, ready or not, so.
I'll use my two most biggest moves as my barometer,
1 )When my sons & I ran away from home (Abusive marriage)-[SCARIEST day ever]
2 )When I moved away from Long Island with Joe & Des...I had NO IDEA if we would make it.
I had no job lined up....JUST took my faith - said I will make it happen- IT WILL WORK!
Turns out those two were the BIGGEST (so far) & GOD guided us & that was what we needed.
Now I hope - I never have to make any more BIGGIES, like those...too old for this stuff...LOL

TRUE, but DUMB Laws! ~ Did you know that, in Reno Nevada:
It is illegal to conceal a spray-painted shopping cart in your basement.
(& they will probably be checking soon...? LOL)

----->Make your Saturday ♡ SUPERB !! °‿°
We have gone above and beyond to embrace change lately (and chance!). We recently (2 weeks ago) moved to PA from MT so that my husband could attend Graduate School at Penn State. Though we tend to be crazy and embrace huge, life-altering changes, sometimes I think we skimp on the little things. Though I was pleased we switched from ground beef to ground turkey a few months back. :)
I would rate my courage a 9 out of 10. We are very open to change but we could make some smaller improvements. :)
