Lessons Of Goldilocks

I’ll be the first to admit that there were a lot of actions that Goldilocks chose that I can’t stand to defend.  But I DID learn a lot from Goldilocks about discernment and balance.  She was not a girl that consistently said, “Oh, it doesn’t matter.”  The girl had a vision for what was “just right.”

And she stuck with it.

A valuable lesson I take away from the famous story of Goldilocks is that it really is up to me to let people know when something is “too” much. “Too hot,” or “too cold.”  The trick is discerning when such vision actually matters.  There are times in life when it really is the right thing to do – to simply let something go.  And yet, there are other times when standing up for our vision and sense of balance is absolutely imperative.  Discernment and balance. THANKS, Goldilocks.
