Yeah, I realize this wasn’t my message last week.
But I pivoted.
And now I feel like a knucklehead.
They were winners in my book.
I should’ve known, though.
The wake-up whack served its purpose.
It forced me to re-think my two previous “poor us” rallies against the stress factors that frequently vex us.
Now, as Cindy would tell you (and I know she’d tell you because she’s already told me), I don’t easily give up on a position once I’ve staked it out.
So, when it comes to discussing the proven stress inherent in our lives, I’m still gonna moan and groan and say, “poor us.”
But now I realize I should’ve included an epilogue.
True growth is anchored in taking action on the stress of a challenge and learning from the experience.
Reading about how someone else addresses challenge isn’t the same thing.
I wish it weren’t so.
Because this forces me to make another change.
My original plan for today had been for me to ask you (beg you) to share how you’re dealing with all of your stressors and challenges.
But I can’t.
If I want to grow, I’ve got to work my way through my own.
Dang flip-flops anyway.
