Frozen thinking

Spring is early in the UK this year, at least, it is in the South of England. Where I live the daffodils are already waving their expectant little golden faces at us as we go about in our t-shirts and prepare to break out the swimwear. Spring is on the way!

At least, we hope. But we aren’t fooled. If we are going to have snow down here the most likely month in recent years has been February. The daffs could yet find that they got it wrong, and that they should have stayed safely frozen a little longer.

Thinking can be a bit like that. Better safe than sorry, so safer to be frozen into a fixed mindset about when and how things will happen. That way there are no surprises and things are always going to be the same. And if they are not we won’t feel let down or disappointed.

On the other hand, letting feelings of warmth permeate your mindset can do a lot to thaw a frosty situation. If you get it wrong you’ll still be able to bloom another day.
