You can rock even the most dysfunctional situation if you have mental clarity about it. It is when you try to delude yourself about the crappiness of any given situation that things have a tendency to fall apart.
How can you make the best of a less than ideal situation if you refuse to acknowledge the crappy elements of it?
Please note that there is a difference between acknowledging something and dwelling on it. I admit that my problem-solving mind has a tendency to dwell on a situation in an attempt to fix it.
Alas, recently I learned the hard way that some of the best solutions derive from simply acknowledging a problem, experiencing the fall out from it, and accepting the inevitable lesson.
I witnessed first-hand how my tendency to constantly fix and problem-solve was blocking me from learning valuable life lessons. Unfortunately, I was also obstructing others from their true destiny as well.
My arrival at this painful truth yielded an unexpected bounty. Stepping back from my problem-solving ways has left me with more energy to blog every day.
Before this "revelation", it was too taxing for me to even think about blogging twice a week!
Thank you mental clarity for all that you have done for me.
