Do you remember playing with a boomerang?
You know the concept-- you hurl it into the air, believing that you are throwing it far away and in seconds it is coming back aimed straight at you.
How does that happen?
We all have personal boomerangs; those pesky habits, patterns or cycles that repeat over and over again in our lives.
We love our boomerangs. We have a collection of them that we display in our mind’s trophy case. We polish them and engrave them with our favorite story.
Imagine a sparkling, bright, red lacquered boomerang with gold embedded words that say,
"I have played hokey-pokey with the
same 10-15 lbs of weight and just can't
seem to keep it off."
Can you see the shiny boomerang whooshing through the air as it is thrown with might and determination?
The weight goes down.
It feels great!
Then out of that same clear air this boomerang appears spinning straight back with precision accuracy and hula-hoops around the waist.
There it is again that familiar 10 lbs.
How does that happen?
The story is verified and the game of hokey - pokey begins again.
What does your boomerang say? Is it engraved with words like-
"I am always sick,"
"I will never finish school,"
"I end up in the same dead end job all the
"I can't trust any man (or woman) that
I'm in a relationship with."
Do you see what all of these boomerangs have in common?
They are engraved with negative power and thrown with anger and dissatisfaction. We become so attached to these Boomerangs and the stories they carry that we keep polishing them and throwing them again and again.
And every time we are surprised when they come targeting right back to us.
What if we changed the story?
What if we changed the engraving to a positive message?
What if we threw our boomerang with love and kindness?
It would come back to us - they always do - but this time with the perfect weight, the job of our dreams, or an amazing partner.
We will wonder -- how did that happen.
It will come back. It always does.

Pennie's Life Lesson:
"You can throw your life boomerang with love and kindness or anger and dissatisfaction- either way it will come back to you—it always does. The choice is yours!"
