In my life there are many things that I have consistently run from. Some examples are running from criticism, judgment from others and sometimes running from myself. As I reflect on the things that I run from, I have had some opportunities to dig deeper within to understand why it is I run from certain things in my life.
Running away from some things however, are not always a negative thing. Turning and running from bad habits, negative people or destructive behaviors and thoughts is a good thing.Being able to recognize when you need to put on your track shoes and bolt is critical! Why is it then that putting on those shoes and running is difficult?
It is easy to stay on the same path or treadmill and just stay in your "safe-zone"! It is easy to be comfortable in whatever circumstance or situation you are in. Non-movement can result in stagnation. Yuck!
