I have been working with the idea of letting our Super Pig Super Hero encounter some life events that some of us take for granted, and others have a real hard time with. You know like going to doctors. My biggest anxiety trigger is going to the optometrist. Some how that little puff of air just terrifies me. Another one was getting tested for breast cancer. I was terrified. I knew I had it. My circumstances at the time was that my husband also had diffuse B-Cell Lymphoma. What are the chances. Regardless, it was, and is what it is. We both had to face our fear, and mortality, and submit to the process of a cure. In all this I found that fear can NEVER be in the drivers seat. It can only be in the passenger seat. It should not dictate what your choice is. It is only there to provide caution. I have also found heroes, and heroes that are now friends during all of this. I have survived. I have learned that fear will close your eyes and heart and soul to everything that is good in life. It will leave you parilized.
I am in a much better place and it all due to putting fear in its place.
This lesson of putting fear in its place on a smaller scale, is what my super hero Super Pig is going through. Placing fear in the right place. Learning, it’s not a guiding force. Our hero has to face up, and own up, to the fact that perhaps they may need glasses. Our Hero has to admit there might be a problem, and that perhaps their eyes may need a bit of help from the local eye doctor. Of coarse our Super Hero’s friends rally around, and help in getting the appointments and being a support. Our Super Hero starts to see that perhaps fear is bigger then the eye problem. Soon, Super Pig is on their way to the optometrist, going to a place they have never been, in a part of town that is unfamiliar, meeting people they have never met. Scary? Yes.
What will happen to our Super Hero? Will Super Pig have to wear glasses? Will this hinder Super Pig’s Super abilities? Perhaps he will meet another Super Hero they never thought they would meet………
Tune in next time to find out what happens to our Super Hero.
