What ghosts do you fear?
One of the things I remember from trick-or-treating as a child at Halloween is that my younger brother was scared to death of ghosts. Or, actually other kids dressed as ghosts.
He and I would be walking from one neighbor’s house to another and all of a sudden, he would scream and start crying. I would look around and there was a kid dressed as a ghost. I would hug him until “the ghost” walked on by.
He was afraid of ghosts not because they were ghosts but because they were dressed in all white. You see when he was a baby and later as a preschooler, he had surgery a couple of times. All of the OR people wore white as did the other nurses and doctors. He associated their white dress and the white sheets of “the ghosts” with pain.
It’s easy for us to associate the ghosts of previous pain with present opportunities. We can choose to fear these moments because of the past.Make a positive life today by redefining your reality. Look for the positive and you’ll see it as you make a positive life in this negative world.
