Stop and Go Home

How many of us are in our present circumstances based on things 
we were taught as children?  Some of those things might have been 
ingrained into our mind for a reason, such as safety.  But, now 
that we're adults, are any of the old rules subconsciously 
holding us back?

I know a woman who had a little girl named Heather, a blonde 
haired, blue eyed exuberant child who pushed her limits.  Now, a 
mother's job is to protect her daughter from injury and danger. 
Boundaries were set, as they should be.  When Heather turned 
five, she wanted to ride her bike out of the driveway.  They 
lived in a small subdivision with no sidewalks, and mom wanted to 
be able to see her at all times.  She told her she could go as 
far as the stop sign, which was two houses away.  The rule was 
when Heather saw the stop sign, she would "Stop and Go Home".

The rule worked great; Heather always turned around at the stop 
sign and came back home.  About a year later, they were headed on 
a trip - packed the suitcases, buckled the kids in, and took off. 
An hour into their travels, they stopped at an intersection.  As 
they were waiting for their turn to go, Heather said, "Oh no! Now 
we gotta go home".  She'd seen the stop sign, and it had been 
ingrained into her head that it really meant "STOP and go home"!

Now, the word Stop means do not go progress - do not move forward 
- immediately discontinue the action at hand.  When we were 
children, "stops" were given to us for our safety and well being. 
But, now that we're grown up, how many of us still use "stops" as 
a safety net?  What devices that were used to keep us safely 
within our boundaries are we hanging on to that prevents us from 

How often do people begin to get close to realizing their dreams, 
to changing their lives, and they hit a "stop sign"?  Maybe they 
"stop" because there isn't enough money to take the next step, or 
they are afraid to leave the certain safety and security of their 
current job to change careers - the fear of the unknown.  What 
will happen when you cross the boundaries that have been 
ingrained into your thinking?

When you hit a stop, you have two choices:  One:  Stop, do not 
move forward, do not pass go.  Stay with the familiar and remain 
at status quo. Two:  Find that little nudge, that hand in the 
small of your back, which gently pushes you to take the first 
step beyond your present boundaries, for with each step you take, 
you are that much closer to achieving your goals and the 
realizing your dreams.

Try to look at all the stop signs, and obstacles in your life as 
positives.  They are opportunities to push your limits, and find 
a way to move forward.  They are momentary pauses on the path to 

        Keep movin', and keep smilin'..
