Anything But THAT – Finding Solutions in the Last Place I Look

Listen to the podcast

As TeamC knows, I am willing to look far and wide for solutions to my problems…or at least, that’s what I thought. This month, I’ve had to face the fact that while I’m willing to try a lot of things, I also have an, ‘Anything but that’ list digging its heels in on a constant basis.

One thing I can say for this pandemic is, it’s forcing me to entertain new solutions. My old answers simply aren’t working. And, if I claim to be open-minded, I have to be willing to open my mind to solutions I’ve previously been closed off to.

After facing and embracing some of those, ‘Anything but that’ fixes, I’m reminded that my pain is never caused by opening my mind to new solutions. My pain is always caused by keeping my mind closed off.

    Ready to join me?

    I would love for you to join me as I work to undo these old patterns and evolve to create a more serene and accepting existence. (And you should know that I still want to ear flick the little knuckleheads {this includes my husband} when they don’t rinse a dish before putting it in the dishwasher — always a work in progress.)
