“You are far too smart to be the only thing standing in your way.” Jennifer J. Freeman
This has been a long time favorite quote of mine and these days it rings even truer I believe.
Mindset is a huge obstacle when I want to accomplish anything.
Mindset is also the biggest battle I face when I am struggling with change.
This year has been full of obstacles and change that is for sure and I have been thinking of this quote a lot.
Some days it feels like I am putting together a giant puzzle and finally making headway only to have something (or someone) come by at the end of the day and topple the table over.
Disappointment and frustration seem to be my constant companions, no matter how many times I try to make the puzzle work.
The good news is both frustration and disappointment are mindsets and in a world and time when there is so much I can’t control… I can control my mindset.
Or, at least try to… which truth be told, is a lot easier than trying to control situations I cannot.
So, I am trying to look at the puzzle differently these days. Maybe the point isn’t to complete it like it always has been before… The to-do lists, the monthly goals, the activities, etc.
Maybe instead the point is to enjoy my time each day placing the pieces with my family to see what little bit of life is revealed to us that day…
And if at the end of the day the table is toppled once again, then a new adventure awaits in the morning.
