“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.” – Viktor E. Frankl
When I was a little girl, I had a heck of a time learning how to ride a bike. My brothers insisted that I learn to ride by coasting down the hill on our farm, but going too fast scared me and I refused to do it.
I did want to learn, so oddball child that I was, I’d coast down with my feet dragging, and then do my best to pedal back up. It was the “wrong” way to do it, but it worked for me.
A lot of times lately I feel like society is trying to shove me down some hill “for my own good”, but I’m still stubborn, and still don’t take to that very well. I may not be able to change what’s going on around me, but I can still dig in and figure out a different way to deal with it.
My challenge for you this month – figure out another way to tackle a problem or task that’s been holding you up.
Life keeps coming at us whether we’re ready or not, so we need to keep practicing our creative problem solving skills.
All our best to you and yours,
Laurie (and August IV, August V, and Duncan)
