Werewolves are scary.
If you had one after you, you’d certainly be worried.
They’re big, strong, fast and have really sharp teeth.
They also have the ability to hide in plain sight as they can shift from human form to werewolf form in a matter of seconds.
To make things even worse, in some werewolf tales the werewolf doesn’t even realise they’re a werewolf.
They just wake up naked in a bush and think they’ve had too many beers the night before, when really they’ve been on a path of a destruction…
(I’m sure no one can relate to that).
Yet, no matter how deadly a foe they may be, there’s a way to kill them.
All you need is a gun and a silver bullet.
It’s the same with vampires, they’re nearly indestructible… until you swing a stake or a clove of garlic at them.
But, when it comes to our problems in daily life, there’s not always a quick fix like a stake or a silver bullet.
Yet that’s all we look for…
A quick way to get rich…
A quick way to get a six pack…
A quick way to gain a qualification…
Sadly these quick fixes (when they work) are usually temporary solutions…
So, I guess it’s time for us to look past the quick fixes for real, life-time fixes to some of our problems.
Often there are four or five ways to solve something, but if you lose yourself in looking for that one ‘silver bullet’ you’re likely to miss them.
P.S. for the record my favourite werewolf film is called ‘The Howling‘ – an eighties classic, enjoy!
