Learning to Love Christmas

Learning to Love Christmas

The other day I saw a story on the internet and it made me think about Christmas. The story is one about a gardener who was getting frustrated with garden weeds. It goes like this: A man who took great pride in his lawn found himself with a large crop of dandelions. He tried every method he knew to get rid of them. Still they plagued him. Finally he wrote to the Department of Agriculture. He enumerated all the things he had tried and closed his letter with the question: “What shall I do now?” In due course, the reply came: “We suggest you learn to love them.” What Have Dandelions Got to do With Christmas? Over the past few weeks I’ve heard lots of people start to bemoan the onset of Christmas. It seems that many of us find something to complain about; whether it’s the commercialisation of Christmas or the frustration of shopping. Every year, time seems to speed up as we head towards December 25th. There’s...

Picking a Winner

Picking a Winner

The other day I lost £10 at the races. I was convinced that despite the odds I was going to pick the winner. How wrong I was. Wouldn’t it be great to predict the future? Imagine all the success at the races. Never again would you lose money. You could go to Las Vegas – the world would be your oyster. Or would it be great to predict the future? Taking the Fun Out of the Game Recently whilst at a hotel we played at the Casino. It wasn’t a real Casino; we were given fake gambling chips (they were worthless). Playing black jack was a bit of fun and I wasn’t much good. At one point the dealer obviously took pity. Just as I was about to ‘twist’ a new card he let me see its value to prevent me from going bust. In that instance the ‘fun’ was taken out of the game. Knowing the value of the next card meant I could never lose. You would...

Which Wolf Do You Feed?

Which Wolf Do You Feed?

If you’ve ever battled with the two inner voices, then this Cherokee fable will resonate with you. Cherokee Fable One evening, a grandfather was teaching his young grandson about the internal battle that each person faces. “There are two wolves struggling inside each of us,” the old man said. “One wolf is vengefulness, anger, resentment, self-pity, fear, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance. The other wolf is love, joy, peace, generosity, kindness, friendship, compassion, faithfulness, hope, truth.” The grandson sat, thinking, then asked: “Which wolf wins, Grandfather?” His grandfather replied, “The one you feed.” Which wolf do you feed? How often are we in situations where we feel torn? How often do we do battle with these wolves? Stepping into a new or unknown situation will activate the fearful wolf. However sometimes, in order to grow and develop, you have to step beyond that wolf. As John Wayne said, “Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway”. So how can you feel that fear but do it anyway? Covent...
