Turn Your Back on Nonsense

She turned her back on nonsense and walked toward joy. – Queenisms™

Someone once said we change when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change. Boy, oh boy has this been true for us. Change is the norm. Things change every day. We get older, people come and go in our lives, jobs shift, children grow up, animals pass on and the challenges, big and small, cause our “normal” to be anything but. Yet we insist on hanging onto the idea that we can stop change from marching on. We can’t. But our resistance to change drags us down, depresses our joy, locks us in the closet of fear and robs us of the life adventure that is right in front of our eyes. One of the bravest – and simplest – actions we can take is to recognize “nonsense” and walk away. The drama of other people’s fears and resistance to change, the futility of trying to keep everything the same and the sheer absurdity of thinking we can fix everything for everyone is nonsense. Close your eyes for a moment and image that all this nonsense is in a big bag, perhaps like the one Santa might be carrying over his back in the storybooks of your youth. Feel how heavy all that anxiety is. Feel how much effort it takes to lug it around with you. Now, imagine you just set it down, turn your back to the pack and walk away. Notice the lightness in your step. Don’t look back. Leave it be. There was never anything in that bag worth holding onto in the first place. Where would you go next as you lightly, freely, and with peace of mind hit the trail on your own new adventure? Holding onto that burden is a choice. You can make a new choice and set it down, walk away and change course. Will you?
