Don't Be A Cooked Frog!
I'm too old to adapt to somebody else's ways- Claudia Christian
Humans have an amazing ability to adapt to almost any condition whether its physical or mental. So much so in fact, that I am in the completely opposite opinion of today's quote.
Because if nothing else- we always adapt to ourselves.
This isn't always a good thing. We may no longer do things that benefit us and therefore adapt our behavior to think or feel its not so bad after all. We may expect less of ourselves and therefore accomplish less. We may let our health go and our relationships suffer.
All because we adapt to ourselves.
So my thought today is to be careful what you let yourself adapt to. To be sure we MUST adapt to survive because we are never in complete control of our surroundings but just make CERTAIN you are adapting to the right thing in the right way at the right time.
Remember, The easiest way to cook a frog? Put it in a pot of water that it is comfortable to then slowly turn the heat up, it will adapt so easily that it wont recognize the danger and will let itself be cooked!
Don't be a cooked frog!
