I’ve got this great green sweater with the coolest two hole oval wooden toggle button. The babies I nanny for love it! They play with it and pull on it as if it’s a toy.
Therefore, it’s usually literally hanging by a thread!
Doesn’t life feel a little like that sometimes? You’re played with and pulled on emotionally so much sometimes that it feels like you’re hanging by the proverbial thread?
Well, just like when my button is hanging off that sweater and I securely sew it to fasten it back on; so we should do with our life.
Mend it. Do what you need to do for you!
Will eating healthier make you feel better? Then do it!
Will joining a gym or working out in some way make you feel better? Do it!
Whatever it is that gets you out of your head and makes you feel better you should do!
I’m not talking about major life changes or things that could potentially hurt others in the process. That’s selfishness to an extreme!
It is however ok to be a bit selfish and indulge in what makes you feel securely fastened back on that sweater!
Nobody wants a loose or lost button!
Do what is needed to “Fix” it!
