Remember that old childhood game?
The Wolf would whirl around and yell out a random time like 2 o’clock whereupon all the children would move forward 2 steps.
Eventually, the group would be closer and closer to Mr. Wolf. Ooooh the excitement because any moment the wolf could yell “lunch time” instead of an actual time.
Then screaming begins; the chase is on and someone might get tagged to be the next wolf.
So exciting…so much fun!
You know what? I’ve been wondering myself what time it is lately. I realize something. My quest for my ‘next step’ is kind of like that old game.
The thing is to some degree I hold both positions; wolf and the player trying not to be dinner!
I have to sometimes be the wolf and decide what time it is. Sometimes I have to be the player who despite feeling like a nervous Nellie also feels the excitement and fun of advancing even though I might get tagged or out. Too much fun to stop.
Earlier this year was a different time for me. Earlier this year was the time to pick up challenges and go after them all. It was a ‘say YeS’ to life time. It was awesome!
Right now I am feeling times have changed. I have asked my inner Mr Wolf what time it is and I’m hearing it’s a time to let go. Scary, painful but exciting all at the same time because I understand that this time too will change and better things will be coming my way as soon as I make room for them.
No matter what time is it, I keep moving forward. I keep finding ways. The important thing is to know what time it is for you.
Is it time for:
- letting go
- taking a bold step
- finding the questions to ask
- taking a break
- charging forward
No matter what time it is in your life; listen to your inner wolf and honor him/her. Mr. Wolf calls out the time, you have to try to move forward.
So I’m asking you, what time is it for you Mr. Wolf?
