Wouldn’t it be wonderful if life came with warning signs everywhere.
Warning, don’t go there tonight
Warning, don’t date him/her
Warning, don’t smoke that, drink that or eat that!!!
WARNING, this decision will negatively impact the next 10 years of your life!

Have you ever considered Alice who followed the rabbit down the hole? Was it something about a talking white rabbit with a pocket watch? Or was it the adventure of the hole? What motivated Alice to follow that white rabbit? Perhaps that white rabbit represented our willingness to jump into a hole and follow with all caution to the wind to chase what we perceive to be an adventure. Would Alice have followed that rabbit if there had been a warning sign? Remember the story, she was bored and curious
and “Alice without notice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling” – Lewis Carroll. What are the white rabbits in your life? What are the things you are following without a moment to think and before long you find yourself falling too into a deep hole?
In a world with few warning signs and a life full of white rabbits, what are you going to do? Take a second, stop today and consider the white rabbits in your life. What are they? How far are you willing to follow them? What is the cost?
