Do you know your demons, or are you wrestling with them to keep them at arm’s length? They’re your demons after all, so they’re unlikely to quit knocking at your door. Why not invite them in, sit down for a drink or dinner with them, and get to know them a little.
Your demons are as much a part of you as the parts you are promoting and celebrating. Some may even be parts you once embraced but now reject. Others may be aspects of yourself you haven’t spent the time getting to know. Whatever the case, your demons are a part of you who you are. Making friends and cuddling with them is like getting a flashlight and looking around in the corners of the basement or garage to find out what all that stuff is back there. Before you can decide on what to keep and what to toss, you have to know what’s there.
The sorting process is a key component of designing and living the life you want. Where did all that stuff come from? Does it have meaning to you? Is it useful or is it getting in your way?
For the next few weeks, I’ll offer some thoughts, tips and perspectives on where all that stuff came from and how to start sorting it out.
Next week – Where did the rules, terms, and conditions that you live by come from?
In the meantime, snuggling with my demons sounds like a lot more fun than wrestling with them!
