My first Music CD is called “Sheddin’ My Skin”, an inside joke from having played “Na’Toth” a very reptilian character, on “Babylon 5”. The idea that we “shed” our psychological “skins” is not a new one. But here’s the thing about transformation, those old ideas don’t go down without a fight. In fact, it seems that the minute you declare to the Universe that you WILL change a behavior or let go of an outdated idea, that part of you rears its ugly head up in its death throes, pushing you to the limits of your commitment to change.
We are standing at the edge of transformation in our world, too, and it will be messy and challenging, asking us to stand firm in our dedication to becoming more than we have been in the past. All change is scary, the unknown uncomfortable, but change we must, because nothing changes if it stays the same.
“Today, I will examine my perspective of life and ask if my beliefs serve me and the greater good, or if it is time to “shed” these old ideas and give birth to new ones.”
