Believe It!

Sometimes change is scary. Sometimes it is magical.

May 23 Believe it Pauline Baird Jones

This is another post that I wrote back in 2013. Wow, I sure didn’t see 2020 coming when I wrote this:

Sometimes change is scary. Sometimes it is magical. I prefer magical change to the scary kind. The scary kind feels life threatening, even though mostly it isn’t.

And sometimes change feels like the above photo. Sailing out on this golden sea toward something not quite known, but it doesn’t matter that I don’t know, because I do know it will be wonderful. Not perfect, but wonderful. (Sometimes perfect is over rated.)

Most of the time change feels scary, but I’ve come to realize that it’s really about what I believe will happen. Belief is a powerful thing. If I think that I’m getting a headache, I usually do. If I think “I don’t have time for a headache” then I don’t get one. I try to remember this, but it doesn’t always work, because deep inside I don’t believe the headache will go away.

Yeah, belief is pretty powerful stuff. And you mix some fear in there…yeah, not good.

The sad part is, if I go into something believing that I can’t do it, then I usually can’t. So I love it when it feels like I’m skimming toward wonderful. I love riding on the magic.

Okay, looking back on the last few years, I still believe this. I believe that what we think has a powerful influence on what happens to us. I’ve been taking this intensive marketing course (Get My Book Out There) and we’re constantly being challenged on our mindset and overcoming preconceptions. (I love it!)

Starting a new book is also like sailing off into the unknown, only everything happens inside my head. I love the sense of anticipation, the feeling that my story is just beyond the horizon, that I’ll find it if I just keep reaching for it. It’s like magic. Magic I have to work at, but magic just the same.

What’s it like inside your head? Is there anything in your life that feels magical? I hope so, because everyone should have a little magic in their lives.

Perilously yours,

Pauline
