“Don’t poke the bear!” is a line my ex and I used to use when warning the other that our daughter was in a bad mood. Sometimes, even as a parent, it’s just so tempting to push the boundaries. We would take turns trying to make our daughter smile.
I hope you enjoy this week’s vlog.
There are times when you don’t poke the bear and there are times when you need to. Poking the bear is sometimes what we need to shake us out of our routine. Just like with my daughter, sometimes we needed to jolt her out of her mood.
From time-to-time we need to be jolted out of our moods or bad habits we’ve acquired. If you’ve lost your spirituality, maybe it’s time to get back to church. If work is turning you into someone you don’t like to look at in the mirror, then it’s time for a change. If you’ve made bad relationship decisions, it’s time to acknowledge them, learn from them, and move on.
Know when to poke the bear. Don’t do it to be annoying. Do it out of love…the love of others or the love of self.
