Call To Adventure: Online Workshop

 

Denial is normal. It is a defense we use in childhood and sometimes denial gets us through the day, through a childhood. In childhood denial can be life-saving. It allows us to create a world where we feel safe and loved, where we can function. There we can find some sunshine. However, the same denial brought forward from childhood into our adult experience can be devastating. It can lead to the tragedy of not knowing who we are, of remaining immature, allowing unhealthy people and circumstances into our lives and most tragically not following our rightful dreams. We have the illusion that everything is okay and if it isn't that we are victims of some outside condition and there is nothing we can do to make it better. We can have the illusion that time heals all wounds, that all we need is time and that time is in abundance. But it isn't. Don't waste your life in denial. You're running out of time.

Music Video: "Running Out Of Time"

Song Lyrics

You say everything is all right
That things will be just fine
But what will you do when its in your face
When you're running out of time
You think that if you look away
The problem will disappear
You think that it just won’t stay
That there is nothing for you here
You are running out of time
The days are passing by
The here and now is yours and mine
The danger’s getting high
You say you want to go away
To leave it all alone
If you don’t even try to stay
You’ll never find your home
You want to have it easy
You want to have no pain
You think you’re light and breezy
But your thinking is insane
You are running out of time
The days are passing by
The here and now is yours and mine
The danger’s getting high
You are running out of time
The days are passing by
The here and now is yours and mine
The danger’s getting high
You are running out of time
The days are passing by
The here and now is yours and mine
The danger’s getting high
You are running out of time
The days are passing by
The here and now is yours and mine
The danger’s getting high
