Laugh and Move On

Updated: Aug 23, 2018

Not even an hour after I wrote about my 2018 theme of treating the root cause versus the symptoms, this happened. 

I cut myself with a knife cooking dinner. Nothing serious, but it was bleeding consistently. Of course, we only have poop emoji and My Little Pony band-aids, neither of which actually work. 

'Joe, how do I cook dinner without a working band-aid? I'm bleeding on the food,' After 5 minutes of my complaining, he says, 'Why don't you just take a paper towel and put pressure on it to stop the bleeding.'

I laughed. Why don't I treat the root cause? I struggled to live my 2018 theme for an hour. 

I share this because it's so easy to forget what we are trying to change. But, also because I didn't just throw out the goal. I laughed at myself, learned, and moved on. 

Next time you slip up, be kind to yourself. Change is hard, but you can do it!
