The Queen of Head in the Sand
8 September 2014
Sometimes there are things we don’t want to face. Where it easier to put our fingers in our ears and go “lah, lah, lah, can’t hear you” or to put our head under the pillow and think “if I can’t see the problems and they can’t see me, they don’t exist”.
This is how I have lived most of my life, it is hard to admit that. The older I get the more I am understanding that problems left unattended, due to being scared or uncomfortable facing them, tend to just get worse. Actually, I think I have always known that, but it was something I shrugged off. But now I know, sometimes we just have to suck it up. We all do stupid things, we all make mistakes and sometimes we have to have a shitty conversation with someone we have upset or has upset us.
I really am relishing my grown-upness lately. The person within is getting more comfortable with the uncomfortable.
It is a fact of life, you can’t cruise through unscathed. I am learning that the satisfaction after facing things head on, is immense. The relief. And you know, most of the times things turn out WAY less traumatic than the scenario you played out in your head. I promise you, the sun will rise tomorrow, just like it did today.
I faced a few things head on today. Things that I have put off for months and years. Things I stress about at 2am. Tonight I will sleep like a baby. I thought I would share this with you guys today, as I know this is something a lot of people tend to do and it causes such unnecessary stress.
So if there is something that keeps you awake at night, that you’ve been putting off, just rip the problem off like a band aid and face it head on. I’ll be here with you. And tomorrow we shall bake something delicious together. I have a good one to share with you all.
Good luck guys.
