Tell us about a time you did a 180 — changed your views on something, reversed a decision, or acted in a way you ordinarily don’t
Most of us like amusing variety, a change in the boring humdrum routine of work and simply living but almost no one likes a gut wrenching core change. Only when I am completely exhausted and finally admit that continuing on my present course is insane or killing me, only then do I let go of control. Change happens when I surrender pride and admit to being, doing, thinking or feeling something that is counter productive. Then I let go and allow an abrupt 18o experience to turn me around.
CHANGE has always seemed impossible if I think too much about it. Although growth is organic and automatic once I say yes and take my foot off the brake.
Ironically, when all the major decisions in my life, all the 180 degree changes sprang up, I immediately knew I had to say yes.
encountering God out of the blue and accepting Him,
marrying…we had seen each other in person 11 days before we were engaged.
moving across the country,
deciding to have a large family,
moving to a farm, to raise healthy food and keep our kids of the street.
I made all these major life changes in the snap of a finger because I knew, deep down in my core that these were the right decisions for me and later us as a family.

WOW!!! That is so cool – congrats on becoming Catholic 🙂 Anyhoo, I’m a little late in this topic but wanted to throw my two bits all the same – hope you can stop by my place soon. cheers!
I guess, in spite of what i write, that most lives do consist of a series of 180 degree changes, no matter how much we declare the opposite. https://grieflessons.wordpress.com/2015/05/31/straight-ahead/
