I will not wrestle with every problem today


Most of us are highly impatient and don’t trust the natural rhythm of change. 

And so, we sometimes attempt to change too many things at once. Because that seems faster more efficient. 

Unfortunately, that amount of change can overwhelm us and backfire. Which leads to frustration, which leads to beating ourselves up for falling short, which leaves us worse than when we started off. 

It’s like the passionate but hurried person who tries to become healthier by eliminating meat, dairy, gluten, nuts and sugar from their diet, all in the same week. 

Their commitment is admirable, but it’s a lot at one time. And scientifically, it’s harder to discover symptom triggering foods with such a blanket approach. 

It reminds me of a mantra that helped build my trust in the natural rhythm of change. 

"You don’t need the whole world on the first day."

The impatient high achiever in me could have used that advice in college. And my twenties. And most of my thirties. 

Because my tendency is to take on the whole of my life’s problems all at once. To go on a quest to fix myself. 

When the reality is, some of my problems will be dealt with later, and some will solve themselves. 

For now, it’s best to just pick one and get to work. 

Easy does it. One bite at a time. That way, you might actually taste something. 

LET ME ASK YA THIS...

Do you still believe solving all of your problems will automatically mean you’ll have what you want?
