Legacy Of Fun

Unlocking the chains that hold me back from celebration and fun

lock and chain

Chained down. Locked up. Barricaded, withheld, tethered, restrained…

Does this describe you? Even a little bit?

Couldn’t you be having more fun than you’re having? Couldn’t you be laughing more? Playing more? Contributing more?

I could.

But at some point in our lives, someone we know (probably someone we even love) put some kind of chain around us and slapped a lock on it.

And more than likely, the chain is forged with the metal of fear. Fear of failure. Fear of being disappointed (or of disappointing others). Fear of losing something. Fear of learning something new about ourselves. Fear of learning we were right all along…

Sometimes we don’t care.

Sometimes we care, but don’t know what to do about it.

Sometimes we’re just… stuck.

And the longer we’re stuck, the more stuck we feel.

But here’s the deal: a lock has 2 positions.

Locked… and UNlocked.

A lock doesn’t get “locked-er”. The next stage of locked is not MORE locked…

The next stage is UNlocked.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I realize I have been chaining and unchaining myself and others most of my life.

The truth is that inside the passion of my own beating heart is a skeleton key that can unlock every chain that holds me back… if I’d just have the courage to turn it.

I’m working on it.

Here’s some great reading material that is helping me:
