That’s not my project

Share this:

That’s not my project  It is impossible for us to be responsible for anyone’s mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual well-being because we are not in control of their brain. But, we often try to be responsible. And when we do, we inevitably end up suffering. My mom is having challenges in all these areas as […]

Buckets with holes

Share this:

Buckets with holes  We can never fill a bucket that has a hole in the bottom. No matter how fast we pour water in, it drains out the hole in the bottom. The answer isn’t in getting more water, it is in patching the hole. This is a great metaphor for how so many people […]

Listening to lousy messages  “Broken” by lovelytheband is a song that I’ve heard a few times.

Well-wishing vs support

Share this:

Well-wishing vs support  There’s a huge difference between wishing someone well and actively and intentionally supporting that person.

Up not through  Einstein said that a problem cannot be solved at the same level of consciousness which the problem was created. We have to raise our consciousness in order to be bigger than the problem. It isn’t about battering through the obstacles, it is about raising ourselves up so that the obstacle no longer […]

Escaping the double bind

Take the wheel

Share this:

Take the wheel  A while back, I was at a social event with some people who just weren’t that conversationally skilled. All they did was wait for opportunities to talk about themselves and had very little curiosity about anyone else there. I just kind of survived the event and certainly did not enjoy myself. In […]

15 no’s, 1 yes  The other morning, Mike texted me to see if I wanted to play volleyball at noon. Of course, I said “yes”. Then Mike said that he’d find two more people and we’d be set. He quickly confirmed Doug so then we needed one more. Throughout the morning, he kept texting me updates […]
