You Can Run, But You Can't Hide

Legendary boxer Joe Louis once said, "You can run, but you can't hide."

There are some situations in life that, for whatever reason, we run from. Depending on the threats we perceive we may run fast and far, or not so fast and/or not so far.

Here's the problem, though. We're essentially running in a circle and The Thing is chasing us...in a circle...and so often we are running fast enough to catch up to The Thing we were running from. I mean we run right up behind it and it stops and turns around and we're face to face with it again.

So, we're right back where we started. (and depending on The Thing, we may be in a worse situation than when we started running..ex. bills)

Sometimes the best decision you can make is to stop running. Let The Thing catch up to you and embrace it. This strategy gives you a better chance of dealing with The Thing on your own terms.

I'm done runnin'.
