CHANGE: “NOT MY FAVORITE”
Recently my husband and I went to a Japanese restaurant with some friends and they wanted us to try one of their favorites, the Miso Soup. Now I am a grilled cheese, hamburger kind of a gal, I am not very adventurous in the culinary world. But our friends were very patient with me, and very encouraging and so I ordered the Miso Soup. It won me over on my first spoonful. The flavor was different than I’m used to, and yet I found it rich in flavor. My husband smiled at me, as he shared in my victory of “stepping out of my familiar food box.”
Today, as I sipped on my hot mocha, I reviewed the coping cards I developed several years ago. One in particular caught my attention: “Our brain is like a computer. We can re-program our script.” This card reminds me that no matter where my mind is set, whether it be soup, or how I view life experiences, I can put on a new “lens” and offer myself new opportunities.
I’ll write more on change in my next blog, so please keep posted!
