Tiny Changes Create Big Things

Humble seems a simple word. Humbleness is something many either lack or never learn to balance with confidence. Confidence is hard to master without becoming arrogant. It’s a fine line, like many things in life. The feeling of passionate and fierce love ride just along the line of love and hate, it’s an easy feeling to shift, though most don’t realize it. Faith and fear are narrowly separated though this is one you don’t hear often. Faith comes often from fear or the verge of fear. When the world around you seems to be falling apart we often suggest for one to have faith. When you are facing a health problem, a loved one is sick, have faith. I rarely see faith come from a place of confidence. Take a leap of faith we say when someone is afraid of taking a chance.

If we tell people instead to believe in themselves it is often met with frustration because it is easier said than done. Blind faith though people will jump haphazardly for. The hatred between people seems to frequently come from a feeling of not being accepted whether in the form of romantic rejection or social. When we dislike the way someone behaves we tend to word it in that way using the phrasing of I don’t like rarely do we say we hate someone for it. Sadness is just as addicting to some as happiness is. There is some kind of payout on both. Somehow both create a chemical response that we tend to seek more of. Maybe it is just a familiar feeling and they seek it out of comfort, I am not sure.

Bad habits are similar in the way that they become familiar and familiarity has some sort of comfort attached to it. It’s why we struggle so hard to shift into other habits it takes a long time for those to become familiar and it is easy to slip into what we know so well. Just change it people say, but change is something most human beings don’t grasp easily, it’s a comfort thing. Life can be quite complicated so naturally, we want something we can count on and routine helps achieve that. Each day we live is full of unpredictability so of course, we relish the things we can rely on to have the same outcome.

Perhaps small changes are better rather than trying to create all changes in one big change. Start small, pack your lunch for work instead of eating out every day. Set your alarm earlier by smaller increments until you get to the goal. Exercise for 10 min and add time each week until you reach your goal. I encourage you to make a change and start very small, Goodluck, there is no time like the present.

I was born and raised in the smallest of towns in Southwest Virginia. A town that is extraordinarily active, yet a town that is like it's very own little mini Bible belt. My dad was Baptist, my mom pentecostal, and I'm paranormal. I would venture to say it is somewhat of a family trait. One that is met with equal acceptance and curiosity as much as it is met with skepticism. Individually and collectively so much has been experienced and witnessed at times to such a degree that one might wonder how on earth there is room for doubt. I dont have all the answers, I do not have it all figured out. Im as human as everyone else relying heavily many mornings on a lot of coffee and a little Jesus. In fact, I can't decide what I want for dinner most days. One constant is I cannot go a single day without chocolate. Pour a cup of coffee, or a little tea and whiskey and join me in my confessions of a haunted freak.

  1. Developing good habits seems the Only way to gain confidence in navigating a world we don’t understand. Since watching The Queen’s Gambit, I’ve taken to chess (the world of 64 squares), I had never played before watching the show. Since starting I have learned that confidence in chess comes from practicing “developing” your pieces so that they always protect each other. Once you practice developing in a logically sound way, then (and only then) does the fear of attack from your opponent stop. When I started I would over-extend my pieces, and be too aggressive sometimes. The way I play now is slow, steady incremental adjustments on the board. And before I know it, I’m starting to win!
