Risk

As I read the chapter this week for the Joy Diet, I knew that I didn't have time nor energy to add one more thing to my plate. I've already been doing this chapter. This summer I started horseback riding lessons and last week I began with a new instructor, which was a big step for me. There are other things as well, but not the focus when I did my vision card.
I sat down at my desk to work on the vision card, opened the first magazine and picture #1 jumped off the page with the word RISK written all over it in my mind. This is my biggest risk factor every day lately. Will I eat something that will set off an allergy or a pancreatic flareup (congenital problem)?
I thought," This is negative, not what I want. But I couldn't move away from the image so I grabbed my scissors, cut it out, pasted it and wrote the word RISK across the top. That was last night.
This morning when I came in my office to post online, the key was sitting on my desk. It must have fallen out of a book or magazine, because a week or two ago I cut out a few pics of keys. There it was, lying all alone, staring at me. I knew I was to add it to my VC. There you have it.
Is this a sign of hope, that the key for me is on the way? That I don't have to keep searching- it will just be there, staring me in the face?

Interesting how we all have different risks to deal with in our lives. Hope this is the key for you!

The key -- so symbolic and so amazing that it fell out when you needed it most!!

You are taking risks already and daring/challenging yourself. The risk you have with food and eating...that is a serious risk and one that I think a great many people face every day. Mind you, it's not a chosen risk -- you aren't deliberately playing russian roulette by eating things you know might trigger an attack. But the world around you provides risk all the time and you have to be so conscientious.

Perhaps this key does hold something valuable for you!

I love how you followed the process even though it didn't make perfect sense to you. That is very brave in and of itself! Here's to unlocking the magic that lives within you...

What a great message you received with the key, gotta love all those little clues the universe send us. It must be difficult having to always be on alert when you are eating, I know for me it is with my asthma and trying to find my triggers. Thanks for sharing your journey this week.
