I Double Dare You!by B.C. Raines on 04/17/20
When I was growing up, my peers and I used to play the Double Dare Game. It simply was a dare (a challenge) to do or say something extreme. However, it wasn’t just any ole challenge, it was a double—a big, super duper—challenge. So, with that in mind, I want you to play the game, too.
Right now, with everything going on, some of us may be feeling anxious, fearful, scared, depressed, nervous, panic and maybe even helpless and/or hopeless. But I double dare you to find at least one positive in your life right now to focus on. I promise you that there is at least one. This may be difficult; even extreme. You may have to think long and hard to find it but that’s the object of this version of the game: to be extreme in the positive!
My personal response to the Double Dare: I am grateful that my son is home safe with me. (Now for those of you who know me personally, you KNOW how much I enjoy…ummm (clear my throat) LOVE would be a better word-- my empty nest (smile). But I am willingly give up “my space”, with all that is going on, to know he’s home and he’s safe.)
Okay enough about me, what’s yours? What’s your response to the Double Dare? (Feel free to comment at the bottom of this post. Your comment just may uplift someone else today.)
Now, I double dare you to find and focus on one positive in your life right now. I also double dare you to double dare someone else to do the same.
