Ever since my husband and I had the small success of moving to Pennsylvania and raising the most wonderful dog in the world we have been engaging in a lot of personal development.
The problem with this is that as we learn and grow and constantly re-assess and re-evaluate, we realize that some of our behaviors need to change.
It's not a bad thing; it's a necessary thing. As you experience life, you have to re-assess your wants, needs, and dreams because things change. Circumstances change. Things you might have never wanted before suddenly become very important.
I have been unemployed for a little over 90 days, and time was ripe to do some assessing. Especially with Yom Kippur coming up in literal hours.
And man, I did not like the answers I had simmering in the back of my brain.
Which in and of itself is a major problem with me achieving anything I actually desire.
However, as Captain Jack Sparrow says, "The problem is not the problem. The problem is your reaction to the problem."
How do you react when you discover new things about yourself?
I wish everyone who reads this a peaceful Yom Kippur and a joyous Talk Like A Pirate Day.
