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...

Probably a 5. Learning to be more assertive would raise my rating.x
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
